Air Canada will return to the Castlegar and the West Kootenay Regional Airport (YCG) with flights to and from Vancouver starting 28JUN 2021.
Flights will be available on Monday, Thursday and Friday afternoons on upgraded Jazz Aviation aircraft with 78 seats.
“Air Canada’s return is promising news for West Kootenay travellers planning to get where they need to go now and where they want to go once restrictions are eased,” says Castlegar Mayor Kirk Duff.
“As the regional airport which previously saw 80,000 passengers a year, we are committed to returning service to what it was before the pandemic – when it’s safe to do so — and this announcement is one step in that direction.”
Air Canada suspended flight service to the airport in MAR 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
