Air Canada to launch service in Red Deer

Written by Submitted

On July 10, 2013 Air Canada announced it would begin scheduled service to Red Deer, AB on September 3, 2013 with three daily flights from Red Deer Airport to Calgary.
Flights will be operated by Air Georgian under the Air Canada Express brand, using 18-seat Beechcraft 1900D aircraft.
This development means people in Central Alberta will be directly linked to Air Canada’s Calgary hub and, more broadly, the rest of the world.
“Flights have been scheduled to enable easy connections to Air Canada’s extensive domestic, U.S. and international network via Calgary,” said Marcel Forget, Air Canada’s Vice President of Network Planning.
“This new step is a tremendous step in our continuing push to enhance business and leisure air travel opportunities for the residents of Central Alberta,” said Forget.
Air Canada predicts this new service will be of great benefit to business and commerce in the area.
Sample introductory one-way fares including all taxes from Red Deer are as follows: Vancouver- $188; Toronto- $227; Halifax- $334, Newark- $299; Los Angeles- $231.
