The Charlottetown Chamber of Commerce board will meet with Air Canada's Kevin Howlett to discuss its concerns over air service on P.E.I.

A top official from Air Canada will meet with P.E.I. business owners Wednesday about the future of service out of Charlottetown Airport.

The Charlottetown Chamber of Commerce is hosting a talk with Air Canada senior VP Kevin Howlett, who is also a former Islander.

Chamber executive director Kathy Hambly said the meeting will be a way for the local business community to hear what Air Canada envisions for P.E.I.

"Air access is a significant issue for many of our members, whether you're in the tourism sector or if you're in business where you're exporting, doing business internationally,"

"To have him come and speak with us directly and  hear our issues and concerns is a very great opportunity."

Hambly said the chamber board will also speak privately with Howlett to discuss some of concerns it has with air access.

The public meeting will be held over lunch at Confederation Centre, at a cost of $30 for chamber members and $35 for non-members.
