More Air Creebec services will be taking flight out of Timmins.

The company announced a number of changes to its services this week.

The week of Aug. 24, a limited service schedule to the Cree Nations from Montreal going through Val-d'Or will start.

The airline will be offering three flights per week to the communities to accommodate essential travel only.

"In Ontario, a few flights are offered between Timmins and Moosonee and the pace will increase as per the communities needs as well," reads an Aug. 18 news release from Air Creebec.

In March, Air Creebec discontinued regular scheduled flights, but continued essential services with its partners for areas such as health authorities and mining sites. 

Executive co-ordinator Lyne Comtois said the flights to Moosonee "slowed down" and the route was kept at a minimum. New flights are also being added.

"We just added Peawanuck this Thursday and next Thursday, but we are constantly monitoring with the communities," she said.

With guidance from Transport Canada, public health, and the federal, provincial and Cree governments, there are new safety measures for passengers and employees.

According to the news release, these included increased disinfection protocol of aircraft and offices using new technologies, mandatory masks, social distancing standards, and more. 

Their full plan for resuming services is available here.  Questions or concerns can be emailed to covid19@aircreebec.ca.
