The money will help construct a new passenger terminal building in YRQ, and a new parallel taxiway in YND (The latter is much needed. I can attest to that, from my days controlling the airspace at Ottawa). YND is one of the busiest airports in Canada without an air traffic control tower service.

YND has a Flight Service Station as I recall?

I remember about a decade ago, Sunwing wanted to fly to YRQ, but couldn't due to a lack of proper terminal facilities. Maybe it'll happen with a new terminal.

Yes, YND has an FSS, and if you have a look at StatsCan’s numbers for FSS stations, YND (along with YYB) are consistently among the busiest in the country.

Makes a lot of sense given it's the only other airport in the NCR capable of handling large biz jets. I've seen a couple of small biz jets at YRP/Carp over the years like Citation IIs.

Looks like FrenchBee (BF) has temporarily switched its fuel stop for ORY-PPT from YVR to YYC.

Nice to see a new foreign tail in town, even if for a short period of time.

Spotters must be happy. Nice upgrade from WS/AC/KL.

It caused quite a stir yesterday. They also fly a 359 which we never get as well.

Slight mistake from what I read. Winnipeg instead of Victoria.

Your correct, thanks. Not sure where I got Victoria from. My bad.

Wonder why they didn't include YYT and YYJ.

The only 2 other airports in the country that would likely receive US service if given the chance.

I also wonder why they didn’t include YTZ or is it because transborder was never truly banned?

AC wasted no time putting out a flashy press release that highlights a schedule that's been in place for weeks now. Nothing new here.

Also PHX still being the only US destination that AC will serve from YYC? Pretty wild we just might get more Transatlantic service from AC than Transborder in the coming months.

Curious who will be the first airline to restart flights from YEG/YOW/YWG or YHZ.

At YOW, UA is going to be the first, followed by Flair. AC will be back on transborder in mid-December at the latest with some Florida flying. Still waiting on WS to finalize that far out, while AA won’t be back until April 2022. DL suspended YOW “indefinitely”.

As for non-transborder international Sunwing will be first. Unlike YQB, YHZ & YEG, who knows when YOW will get back transatlantic service.

KLM is still scheduled to resume YEG in August, not sure if they actually will though.

I think KLM will return, but question will be if it will stay as a triangle or they'll revert back to a non-stop in both directions.

Wonder if WS mainline may add back some YEG-US flying in September.

YWG will probably get DL back first.
