Why would they even want to name it after a historical has-been whose party is moribund. :shrug:

Just call it Dorval Airport and be done with it.

I definitely won't be agitating to have the name changed like others are doing, but yeah it probably wasn't the best choice in retrospect. (For several reasons.)

If you're looking for a MCM terminal, check out the Peace River Airport terminal. Step inside and you step back 40 years in time.

Ah figured there could be a chance of something like that.

Bearskin used to serve all the remote fly-in First Nations communities in Ontario before selling them to Wasaya.

Also also used to serve YOW and YKF, and even briefly YUL and Buttonville too.

I think Porter is what led to JV pulling out of YOW as they couldn't sustain the sub-$200 fares on the SWMs. YOW-YSB one-way typically sold for $300 to $600 on 'The Bear'.

The Province of British Columbia is providing one-time funding of up to $16.5 million for regional airports to support operations between April 1, 2021, and March 31, 2022.

Press Release

Quote:

Airports have experienced a significant decrease in operating revenues that, without financial help, could affect their ability to support and sustain fire suppression and essential medical evacuation services. This grant will provide regional airports the necessary funds to maintain air terminals, runways and other operations for the essential movement of goods and people.

“Undeniably, aviation has been among the hardest hit sectors of the pandemic,” said Heather Bell, chair, BC Aviation Council (BCAC). “The BCAC applauds this announcement from the Province, and we see it as a clear sign that our government understands the vital role our airports play in our transportation system and provincial economy.”
This is good news for British Columbia's regional airports, and it will be interesting to hear more information about the funding program in the coming days / weeks. The Province of British Columbia also provides capital grant funding to regional airports via the BC Air Access Program.

More to come I'm sure.

YUL's summer sked is almost as if CoVID never existed. Austrian, Brussels , Azores airlines, Corsair, Aeromexico, Swiss, BA etc. all still bookable for June, July.

It's not gonna happen. Unless of course, the government cancels their half assed and poorly planned quarantine requirement at hotels. It accomplishes nothing and basically prevents airlines from operating any meaningful international service.

Which is what Montrealers usually call YUL anyways.

Isn't this the intention? Prevent any international travel unless it is really, really necessary.

That, and respond to Provincial kvetching.

It’s mostly to buy votes. Period.

The measures in and of itself don’t accomplish anything if you have double standards.

What’s the point of asking the 500 or so international travellers that pass through YUL a day to quarantine in a hotel when the 10,000+ vehicles that cross the border every day don’t have to do the same.

But, when comes time for an election, Trudeau can say “look, you asked for hotel quarantine, I listened!”

Buying votes. Nothing more. Anyone who thinks any different is an idiot. In the mean time, foreign airlines are getting billions in aid and are enjoying more lenient policies - with regards to Covid - abroad, while our airlines are hanging out to dry.

What are we at now, a 3rd relief package for US airlines?....not even 1 here, for what is probably THE hardest hit industry out there. But sure, give money to movie theatres because they can’t sell popcorn.

Is there any way to post which transborder routes are removed?

West Kootenay Regional Airport YCG here in Castlegar would gladly welcome the help.
