Martin Pink told town council on Thursday that an American carrier will operate the flights.

He believes an announcement is imminent.

Regularly scheduled passenger air service in Yarmouth ended in December when Starlink Aviation announced it was suspending air service.

The service was suspended after a $2 million development fund ran out.


Pink says without the flights, 24 jobs at the Canada Border Services Agency would be in jeopardy after the cancellation of ferry service between Yarmouth and Maine.
