I'm still wondering how an airline flies a transcontinental route originating from the middle of the continent.

That's because the Maritimes don't really exist. Check the classic Risk board for confirmation. Quebec goes as far as YQB, so the GTA is close enough.

Actually the East-West middle of Canada is near Winnipeg.

Apparently the East-West & North-South middle of Canada is near Baker Lake, NU. Calm Air should use that for tourism marketing.

Do any carriers truly fly Canada transcon these days?

I know both AC and WS dabbled with YHZ - YVR, but does anyone still fly it?

Flair airlines expands to Toronto, Vancouver and Kelowna; names Edmonton main transfer hub

http://globalnews.ca/news/3734355/fl...-transfer-hub/


Flights to the three new markets will begin on Dec. 15, and tickets are now on sale. As well, the airline said passengers are now able to book flights through to the end of 2018.

“This is just the beginning of many more announcements such as this,” Lapointe said. “We are adding more aircraft and as we do, our network will grow significantly.”

Flair Airlines currently has five Boeing 737s, and said it will be getting one more aircraft in December, and then a seventh in early 2018. The airline plans to be operating 12 aircraft by the spring of 2019.

Flair said since last year, it has flown over 376,600 passengers on over 3,090 flights.
