Fort St. John was included in the recent route changes taking place from Vancouver to the Energetic City this fall/winter, adding one more daily flight, from four to five, resulting in 50 more daily seats, from 200 to 250.

Marcel Forget, Air Canada Vice President, Network Planning, says the new schedule is based on meeting the needs of their customers.

“Air Canada is increasing capacity this fall and winter on key regional routes reflecting strong demands within Western Canada, the centre of the country’s energy and resource industries.”

Along with the new routes, the airline will also gradually introduce a new state-of-the-art Bombardier Q-400 Next Gen aircraft, operated by Air Canada Jazz under the Air Canada Express brand. The new, ultra-quiet planes will feature 74 all-leather seats with new, spacious overheard compartments.
