PAL Airlines on September 21, 2020, plans to launch a new, five-days-per-week service connecting St. John’s, Newfoundland and Labrador, with Moncton, New Brunswick. The route will be extended to include Ottawa, Ontario, as restrictions on travel to Atlantic Canada are progressively reduced.
An operating unit of Exchange Income Corporation’s family of airlines, PAL Airlines is based in St. John’s, Newfoundland and Labrador, and currently serves more than 20 destinations throughout Atlantic and Eastern Canada. Its new service to Moncton will operate on Mondays, Wednesdays, Thursdays, Fridays and Sundays.
“This new service is an important step forward for our airline,” said Calvin Ash, President of PAL Airlines. “We are thrilled to be able to respond to the needs of our growing customer base by enhancing our route network and adding this new connection between Newfoundland and Labrador, New Brunswick, and soon to Ontario. This is a great opportunity for PAL Airlines to extend our presence in Atlantic and Eastern Canada and introduce our services to new communities while directly responding to the needs of our customers.”
PAL Airlines states the initial schedule between St. John’s and Moncton is designed to offer passengers convenient morning departure times and early arrival times to allow for business and leisure activities at both destinations. The company also notes, that once the service is extended to Ottawa, passengers travelling west will still benefit from convenient arrival and departure times, while passengers travelling east to Moncton and St. John’s will have access to early evening arrival times.
