“We are really looking forward to working with Central Mountain Air and Prince George Airport,” said Tom Ruth, President and CEO of EIA. We have been working on this direct flight for years as there is such a demand for flights between our two cities. We know we will be serving many more Prince George travellers to Edmonton and also connecting to places like Fort McMurray, Grande Prairie, Saskatoon and eastern Canada.”
EIA develops its air service offerings in close partnership with Edmonton Economic Development Corp., Edmonton Tourism, Edmonton Destination Marketing Hotels and regional businesses.
“This is an incredible day for the region; Edmonton has been the number one requested route for over a decade,” says Prince George Airport Authority President and CEO John Gibson. “CMA has put their confidence in Prince George by adding this service. The success of this route is dependent upon the support of the community.”
Another benefit of this flight is it connects from Edmonton to Calgary. Communities in CMA’s extensive network including Terrace, Smithers, Fort Nelson and Dawson Creek, can now easily access Alberta`s two major cities.
“Connecting these points with non-stop service will provide passengers with improved travel service by eliminating the need to connect in Vancouver, which is a 4 hour journey,” said Central Mountain Air’s Marketing Manager, Johnathan Richardson.
Passengers will also be able to connect to Central Mountain Air’s interline partners. Customers can receive multiple boarding passes for connecting flights at check-in, and baggage can be tagged through to the final destination.
