Air Canada is adding a third flight option to Vancouver from the Prince Rupert Airport.

Starting May 2, there will be three daily Air Canada Express flights, flown by Jazz Aviation with 50 seats. The service will run from Monday to Friday until Oct. 28.

An Air Canada spokesperson, Angela Mah, said the company reviews all of their schedules worldwide on a regular basis to ensure that supply reflects demand in the marketplace, and changes are made based on these economic factors.

“Our schedules are also built to connect conveniently to and from our Vancouver hub, where Air Canada has flights to and from Asia, Australia, Europe, North America and Mexico, ensuring that worldwide destinations can get to all of our regional communities easily particularly during the summer peak demand period,” Mah said.
