Airline expanding service at Prince George Airport

Central Mountain Air adding flights to Prince George-based routes

The Prince George Airport will see additional service to a number of B.C. and Alberta destinations starting in late June.

On Tuesday, Central Mountain Air announced it will be adding 78 additional weekly flights to its schedule, starting June 28. While Prince George won't see any new destinations added, the company is looking to restore service that has suspended during the COVID-19 pandemic, a statement issued by the company said.

“CMA has been contacted by both individuals and community leaders to provide service to enable their communities to recover and receive air connectivity after scheduled service reduced over 80 (per cent) due to COVID-19," Central Mountain Air spokesperson Michael Claeren said in a press release. "I commend these municipalities and airports for their willingness to partner and support their regions to help make this announcement today."

Central Mountain Air operates flights between Prince George and Vancouver, Edmonton, Kelowna, Kamloops, Fort St. John, Grande Prairie, Terrace and Fort Nelson.

"This will help nurse communities back to full recovery as the pandemic subsides," CMA CEO Bob Cummings said in a press release. "While many of the affected regional cities have been impacted by this announcement there are more cities and services to come.”

To kickstart demand, the company is offering a 10 per cent discount on flights scheduled after June 1, using the promo code SUMMER21.
