Edmonton, Alta. — Three Alberta air carriers are set to re-start scheduled services from Grande Prairie, High Level and Peace River to and from Edmonton City Centre Airport. The routes were temporarily left vacant by the demise of Peace Air in the spring.

As the result of a public, competitive bid process, Nor-Alta Aviation Leasing Inc., Northern Air Charter (P.R.) Inc. and Swanberg Air Inc. were each awarded licences to provide services to one of the northern communities.

“We congratulate all three carriers for their willingness to re-establish these important routes,” says Reg Milley, President and CEO, Edmonton Airports.
