Prince George, BC – Now that the final remnants of a long winter are melting, Prince George and area residents can soon take advantage of some extra flights out of the Prince George Airport (YXS).
“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” says President and CEO Gordon Duke. “Starting May 1st, WestJet is increasing their direct service between YXS and Calgary (YYC) by adding two additional flights. Come May 18th, 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 says “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.”
This route will run nine times a week until September 8th, then it holds steady at once daily.
As of July 1st, Air Canada will be adding an extra flight to Vancouver bringing the daily service to four flights per day getting us closer to pre-pandemic levels.
The PGAA continues to work with all our airline partners to ensure passenger’s needs are met, existing routes are doing well and pitching business cases on new destinations we feel will do well in our region.
