Canada's Bearskin Airlines is expanding its scheduled service offerings with a 1 May launch of flights from The Region of Waterloo International airport to Montreal Trudeau International airport.
Bearskin plans to offer five daily flights - three direct and two via Ottawa --on weekdays and limited weekend service. But the carrier says it plans to eliminate the one-stop service to Ottawa during the autumn.
Bearskin plans to operate its 19-seat Fairchild Metros on the route. The carrier operates 14 of the type.
"Clearly there is pent up demand within the business community for a convenient service between Waterloo Region and Montreal, "says Harvey Friesen, President of Bearskin Airlines, "We'll fly between these cities in less time than it takes to drive between Toronto's Pearson Terminal and the Waterloo Region.
After the addition of Montreal, Bearskin will offer more than 100 scheduled departures to 18 destination in Manitoba, Ontario and Quebec.
