by Matt Beauchamp
One of the greatest benefits of being an AirSprint fractional jet owner is that you have the ability to check out new events in new cities. When you think of holiday destinations London, Ontario isn’t typically your first thought. But maybe it should be.
AirSprint fractional jet owners have the luxury of flying into London’s International Airport (CYXU) from anywhere in North America, which is a short 15-minute drive to downtown London and the site of this year’s Juno Awards.
Since 1964 the Juno awards have been showcasing the best of Canadian musical acts. This year the awards ceremony will take place this Sunday, March 17 at the Budweiser Garden’s in downtown London. The event will be hosted by 12-time JUNO Award winner Sarah McLachlan and fill feature performances by artists like the Arkells, Bahamas, bülow, NAV and Coeur De Pirate with Loud amongst others.
The best part of private jet ownership in London may be your ability to mix business with pleasure. On-board your Citation CJ3+, your short 40 minute flight from Toronto would shorten the otherwise 2-hour drive alternative. You can get in and out without having to worry about traffic. London gives you the ability to take care of business in Toronto, then relax or take in the many festivities associated with the upcoming Junos.

sixthirynine – sixthirtynine has become a destination restaurant since launching in 2005. It features an ever changing, locally sourced, seasonal Canadian menu by head chef and owner Eric Boyar.
Reverie Restaurant – Reverie is a contemporary Canadian cuisine restaurant that features 5+ course menu every night from Thursday to Saturday.
