Less than a week after Air Georgian took over the Charlottetown to Toronto route for Air Canada, Air Canada has cancelled Air Georgian flights and taken them over itself.

Air Georgian took over the route May 1, and there have since been delays and cancellations on the Charlottetown-Toronto route, says Charlottetown Airport CEO Doug Newson. One flight on Sunday was delayed more than seven hours, and there were delays Monday as well.

Air Canada told CBC News Monday it would take over operation of the route to ensure prompt service. On Tuesday six original Toronto-Charlottetown flights were showing as cancelled on the Charlottetown Airport web site. They were replaced by other flights, most running 20 minutes to an hour later.

Those planes are operated by Air Canada, said Newson.
