"Air Canada is pleased to link Regina and Ottawa with daily, non-stop service with the added feature of same plane service to Montreal. This new flight should be popular with business, government and leisure travellers alike as it reduces current travel time by nearly two hours when compared to connecting over other routings," said Marcel Forget, Vice President, Network Planning at Air Canada. "We continue to strategically expand our network in response to the strength of the Saskatchewan economy. Air Canada's new flights between Regina and Ottawa will complement Air Canada's current schedule of three daily flights from Regina to Toronto."

Flights will be operated by Air Canada's regional partner Jazz with 75-seat Bombardier 705 jet aircraft offering a choice of Executive and Economy class, and featuring Air Canada's personal inflight entertainment system available at every seat throughout both cabins. The flights are timed for convenient connections with Air Canada's network, including London, Frankfurt, New York, Halifax and St. John's for flights leaving Ottawa for Regina, and onward connections to destinations such as Halifax, Boston, New York and Frankfurt for flights arriving in Ottawa from Regina.
