There will soon be more flights going in and out of the Norman Rogers Airport in the Limestone City. It appears the City of Kingston, Ont., will be partnering with regional airline Pascan Aviation.
City officials have called a news conference for Thursday afternoon that will include various city officials and representatives from Pascan.
The airline primarily serves the province of Quebec, including Montreal and Quebec City, but also has flights landing at the Wabush airport in Labrador.
Other Quebec destinations include Saguenay, Saint-Hubert, Baie-Comeau and the Gaspe region.
However, the company says customers will be able to use their flights to connect with Air Canada and Air Transat flights.
“With our interline agreements with Air Canada and Air Transat, we are proud to say we will be bringing Kingston to the world, and the world to Kingston,” Pascan CEO, Julian Roberts said.
Air Canada, Kingston’s only air carrier, cancelled service in March of 2020 at the start of the COVID pandemic.
Other than a short stint with charter company Fly GTA, there haven’t been many planes flying out of Kingston’s airport since.
