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.

(Editor's note: This replaces an earlier story indicating Air Canada was going to use the Q400 aircraft on its Vancouver-Terrace run.)
