More flights to Calgary to be offered at YXS

Gordon Duke president and CEO of the Prince George Airport Authority.

Now that the final remnants of a long winter are melting, Prince George and area residents can soon take advantage of some extra flights out of YXS.

“The Prince George Airport Authority (PGAA) continues to assess our passenger needs and due to our strong relationships with our airline partners, we are pleased to see additional service out of our airport” said president and CEO Gordon Duke. “Starting May 1, WestJet is increasing their direct service between YXS and Calgary (YYC) by adding two additional flights. Come May 18, another pair of flights to YYC will be added bringing the number to nine flights a week up from the current five.”

Air Service Development Manager Kaitlyn Joyce said: “Passengers can now take advantage of WestJet’s new direct international flights out of YYC without having to stay overnight on the way home and the timings are also very conducive to weekend getaways.”

This route will run nine times a week until September 8, then it holds steady at once daily. As of July1, Air Canada will be adding an extra flight to Vancouver bringing the daily service to four flights per day getting closer to pre-pandemic levels.
