Air Canada increases capacity between Happy Valley-Goose Bay and Halifax, and Happy Valley-Goose Bay and St. John's

Only daily non-stop flights between Happy Valley-Goose Bay-Halifax and Happy Valley-Goose Bay-St. Johns.

ST. JOHN’S – Air Canada announced it will increase capacity on two of its routes serving Labrador & Newfoundland by 48 per cent for summer 2016 travel. Effective May 1, 2016, flights between Happy Valley-Goose Bay and Halifax, and Happy Valley-Goose Bay and St. John’s will be operated by Air Canada Express with 74-seat Bombardier Q400 aircraft instead of the current Bombardier 50-seat CRJ.

“We are pleased to offer our customers in Labrador more capacity to Halifax and St. John’s to meet increased travel demand this summer,” said Benjamin Smith, President Passenger Airlines Air Canada. “By strategically deploying our fleet to meet seasonal shifts in demand, the additional seats and cargo capacity will benefit both business travel in the hydroelectric sector and the tourism industry.”

“We are pleased with the increased capacity into the Labrador market,” said Geoff Goodyear, 1st Vice Chair of the Labrador North Chamber of Commerce. “This service upgrade will help support existing economic projects and business development as a whole in our region.”

Flights from St. John’s are timed to provide an opportunity for same-day return itineraries, while Halifax flights offer convenient connections to/from Toronto, Montreal, Ottawa, and the Maritimes.
