Launched 9 July, the carrier will operate the route six times weekly.
- Central Mountain Air has begun flights between Prince George (YXS) and Edmonton (YEG). The carrier, which started flights on the 602-kilometre sector on 9 July, will operate the city pair on its fleet of 30-seat Dornier 328s. “Introducing this non-stop route allows for a quick flight between Prince George and Edmonton or onto Calgary, and opens many connection opportunities within and outside of our route network,” said Central Mountain Air President Douglas McCrea at the route announcement back in June. “We are really looking forward to working with Central Mountain Air and Prince George Airport,” said Tom Ruth, President and CEO of Edmonton Airport. “We have been working on this direct flight for years as there is such a demand for services between our two cities. We know we will be serving many more Prince George travellers to Edmonton and also connecting to places like Fort McMurray, Grande Prairie, Saskatoon and eastern Canada.” No other carrier currently operates the city pair.
