Air Canada shuffles Charlottetown flights
Air Canada is making changes to flights out of Charlottetown for the fall and winter season.
Starting in November, there will be no flight to Ottawa, one fewer Montreal flight and an extra flight to Toronto.
The changes are not a reduction in overall services. Larger planes will mean the same number of seats available leaving the province. Charlottetown Airport Authority CEO Doug Newson doesn't expect the changes will affect the number of people flying out of the airport.
"Anybody that's doing business in either Toronto or Montreal or even Ottawa, if they're government workers, there will be some impact," said Newson.
"If you're going to Toronto it's a much better schedule. If you're going to Ottawa or Montreal then the leisure customer may think twice and try to travel from somewhere else. But, you know, at the end of the day we still have the same number of seats available per day that we had last winter."
Newson said some people have had their flights rebooked.
