Air Canada scaling back service to six days a week at in North Bay

Demand, pandemic-related restrictions among factors influencing decision to reduce flights

Air Canada has confirmed it is scaling back flight service to only six days a week out of North Bay's Jack Garland Airport

The news was confirmed by BayToday from Air Canada media relations on Monday afternoon.  

"As we have since the start of the pandemic, Air Canada continues to evaluate and adjust its route network as required in response to the trajectory of the pandemic, government-imposed travel restrictions and quarantines, regulatory requirements, and the impact of these factors on overall demand," a spokesperson stated to BayToday

"As part of these ongoing schedule adjustments, we have temporarily reduced our North Bay-Toronto service to one flight daily, except for Wednesdays (or six days a week)."

After leaving Jack Garland Airport for close to a year, Air Canada returned to operate flights from North Bay to Toronto back in June of 2021.

Air Canada started back gradually in North Bay with three flights a week on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday in the first month back in operation. By late July 2021 that schedule increased to one flight per day, and then plans were to increase to two per day in the fall.

Air Canada is Canada's largest domestic and international airline, and in 2020 was among the top 20 largest airlines in the world.
