The Prince George Airport will see additional flights take off from YXS this spring and summer increasing the direct service between Prince George and Calgary.
“The Prince George Airport Authority (PGAA) continues to assess our passenger needs and due to our strong relationships with our airline partners, we are pleased to see additional service out of our airport” said President and CEO Gordon Duke.
“Starting May 1, WestJet is increasing their direct service between YXS and Calgary (YYC) by adding two additional flights. Come May 18, another pair of flights to YYC will be added bringing the number to nine flights a week up from the current five.”
Air Service Development Manager Kaitlyn Joyce explained how the additional flights will be more convenient for passengers.
“Passengers can now take advantage of WestJet’s new direct international flights out of YYC without having to stay overnight on the way home and the timings are also very conducive to weekend getaways,” said Joyce.
This route will run nine times a week until September 8, then it hold steady at once daily.
As of July 1, Air Canada will also be adding an extra flight to Vancouver bringing the daily service to four flights per day which will bring the airport closer to pre-pandemic levels.
The PGAA says it continues to work with all its airline partners to ensure passenger’s needs are met, existing routes are doing well, and continues pitching business cases on new destinations it feels will do well in the region.
