We also saw a significant increase in international cargo activity with over 400 tonnes of product shipped on Kalitta Air flights in August and September.

We’re proud to offer 20 daily (Monday-Friday) departures to major Canadian centres such as Toronto, Montreal, Halifax and Ottawa through our partner airline carriers which include Air Canada, WestJet and Porter Airlines.
“We are very proud to share this great news with the community as we are dedicated to continue working hard at retaining as many flight options and always aim at getting added frequency on existing routes as well as pursuing other route opportunities.” said Bernard LeBlanc, the airport’s President and CEO. “We are extremely grateful for the continued support of our travelers, airlines, and our partners in the business community, together we have made it possible for us to continue increasing our air service.”
