We are very excited to be granted this growth opportunity with Air Canada and we look forward to continuing to strengthen our relationship with Canada’s flagship carrier
Calgary, Alberta (PRWEB) November 03, 2011
Beginning October 1st 2011, Air Georgian launched flight operations in Calgary in support of their Capacity Purchase Agreement with Air Canada. Air Georgian will operate two Beech 1900D passenger Airliners, under the banner of Air Canada Express to Cranbrook, Medicine Hat and Lethbridge, Alberta. The opening of the Calgary base represents a third base location for Air Georgian. Air Georgian also has two fully operational bases, which include aircraft maintenance services, in Toronto and Halifax.
“We are very excited to be granted this growth opportunity with Air Canada and we look forward to continuing to strengthen our relationship with Canada’s flagship carrier” says Air Georgian President Eric Edmondson.
In response to significant demand from the province’s oil and gas sector, Air Georgian has positioned a third B1900D Airliner that is available for on-demand corporate aircraft charters, specialized business shuttle programs and oil crew changes to Fort McMurray and points north.
“We are confident that our operational strength and experience coupled with the versatility of our aircraft will be a great compliment to the Calgary aircraft charter market. Air Georgian is looking forward to building new relationships with the key players in Calgary’s corporate jet charter and shuttle market and providing supplemental lift support to those who require it.” comments Ian Wilson, Manager of Business Development for Air Georgian.
Air Georgian has established offices and an aircraft maintenance facility located at 575 Palmer Road N.E., in Calgary, Alberta. All corporate charter and shuttle inquiries can be made directly to 1-877-247-5559 or at charter(at)airgeorgian(dot)ca.
