Air Canada adds Western Q400 services
Air Canada yesterday announced it will boost capacity on regional routes across Western Canada this spring as it deploys more Bombardier Q-400 Next Gen aircraft. The airline explains these changes are part of an ongoing transformation of Air Canada Express that will result in enhanced services.

“The ultra-quiet, comfortable, fuel efficient and faster Q-400 aircraft will be well-received by our customers and is larger than the regional aircraft it is replacing,” said Mark Galardo, VP, network planning, Air Canada, describing how service will be deployed to more communities in Western Canada. “With our varied and flexible fleet, we are also adding frequencies to our Vancouver-Anchorage and adding capacity to our Calgary-Winnipeg route with larger Airbus aircraft in response to demand.”
Air Canada Express flights operated by Jazz Aviation LP are to provide service to Air Canada’s domestic, U.S. and international network at Vancouver and Calgary. The new services will see capacity increase for Vancouver Island, Northern BC, BC Interior, Saskatoon and Winnipeg.
