Greyhound Air, a new Canadian low-cost domestic carrier, plans to begin operations on 8 July, following long-awaited Government approval.

The airline, operated by Kelowna Flightcraft Air Charter for bus company Greyhound Lines of Canada, had planned to begin services on 15 May (Flight International, 21-27 February, P10), but was thwarted by of a wrangle over Greyhound's foreign ownership.

Greyhound will use six hushkitted 160-seat Boeing 727-200s to link Calgary, Edmonton, Hamilton, Kelowna, Ottawa, Toronto, Vancouver and Winnipeg.
