Hawkair announces a schedule change effective December 1, 2015 that will see the airline operating daily flights between Kelowna, Prince George and Terrace by reducing capacity on the Prince Rupert and Terrace to Vancouver routes.
The new flights will be operated by Hawkair aircraft and flight crew with Central Mountain Air as the marketing carrier. “With the seasonal slowdown in Prince Rupert we’re moving our aircraft to perform higher demand travel between Terrace, Prince George and Kelowna,” stated Jocelyn Lebell, Hawkair Director of Corporate Services. “By adjusting our route schedule and partnering with CMA we are able to double capacity to these markets.”
During the Christmas holiday period Hawkair will be operating select flights in Prince Rupert. While the airline usually reduces capacity into Prince Rupert in the wintertime, the decision was made this year to remove it entirely for the winter season with the expectation of service resumption in the much stronger spring and summer months. They will also be reducing a portion of capacity from the Terrace-Vancouver route.
