Canadian Western Airlines plans to have its 16 seat twin-engine turbine aircraft (complete with bathroom) flying to the islands next Thursday (January 16), after it receives certification from Transport Canadaon Wednesday.
“We hope the service will be beneficial to the community, and provide competition so that the community gets the best travel value and service,” says CWA president Mohamed Doma.
Service has been delayed more than a month by a labour dispute at Transport Canada, says Mr. Doma.
To celebrate, CWA plans to offer free flights on selected dates this month to any customer who books a flight in February.
The company will begin with five day service to Vancouver until the end of April and then begin seven day service for the summer season.
