Air Canada launches non-stop Calgary-Terrace route

Air Canada will launch daily non-stop, year-round flights between Calgary and Terrace beginning Oct. 28, 2019, which will complement the airline's five times daily flights between Vancouver and Terrace. 

Air Canada is also increasing capacity on key regional routes across Western Canada this winter with its flexible fleet including continued deployment of the popular Bombardier Q-400 aircraft.

"We are very pleased to add a new route linking Northern B.C. with our Calgary hub this fall in response to economic growth in the Skeena Valley area," said Mark Galardo, vice president, network planning, Air Canada. "The new daily, non-stop flights between Terrace and Calgary will not only offer convenient flight options in response to travel demand between these two respective areas, but also the choice of another hub where easy connections to and from our extensive network are available. Further, with significant development projects underway in the Terrace-Kitimat area, we are also strategically boosting capacity on our Vancouver-Terrace route this winter with five daily flights. With these new schedule enhancements, Air Canada will offer the most flights and options to travel easily between Terrace-Kitimat and anywhere across North America and internationally."

Increased capacity

Air Canada has also increased capacity this winter in several other regional markets in Western Canada.

Following the introduction of more comfortable, fuel efficient and faster Q-400 aircraft earlier this year, the company will continue to deploy the aircraft this winter to the BC Interior, Northern B.C., Vancouver Island and Northern Alberta communities, providing more seats and optimizing the most connections between our extensive regional and global markets.

Air Canada will also add capacity  on its Whitehorse, Saskatchewan, and Winnipeg routes with larger Airbus A319/A320 and CRJ-900 aircraft. Customers on these services can take advantage of Air Canada's Business Class and wi-fi options.

Increased services across Western Canada regional markets this fall and winter peak compared to last year include:
