Air Canada to add more flights in Castlegar

Air Canada Jazz will begin offering flights to Vancouver six days a week from the West Kootenay Regional Airport in Castlegar starting Feb. 8, city council heard this week.

Airport manager Maciej Habrych told council that planes will arrive every day except Thursday at noon and depart again at 12:40 p.m.

Presently Air Canada is offering service four days per week.

“Another day of flights with Air Canada is exciting news for West Kootenay travellers looking for the best options for their travel needs,” Habrych said in a news release. “As the regional airport, we are very happy to be one step closer to returning service to what it was before the pandemic.”

Habrych says it is hard to look much further in advance, as airlines have only been scheduling month to month.

He added that the airport saw a few cancellations in the last week due to weather. He previously reported that 19 of 21 scheduled flights made it in December.

On June 28, 2021, Air Canada returned to the airport, following a suspension of flight service resulting from the COVID-19 pandemic. It has been increasing flights as demand grows.
