Air Canada to add summer flight
Air Canada has announced it will be adding a fifth flight to its daily Vancouver-Terrace run as of July.
"This year there will be five Dash-8-300 flights (vs. four Dash 8-300 flights in 2012) in response to the demand," company official Angela Mah this afternoon.
The daily capacity will rise from 200 seats to 250 a day.
The increase follows the airport setting a record for passenger traffic in 2012.
News of additional service into Terrace was part of an announcement of increases of service into a number of Western Canadian airports.
Air Canada will also be adding to its Vancouver-Smithers service, increasing daily capacity from 100 to 150 seats.
In all, there will be increased capacity to 19 airports. Prince Rupert was not on the list.
