More Canadian scheduled air service

Charter operators Air Transat, Skyservice Airlines and Zoom Airlines will be
following in the footsteps of Air Canada and commencing direct scheduled flights
to the Dominican Republic from Canada this year. Air Transat of Montreal told
Canadian Press that the deal means it will simply change its charter services
into scheduled flights without adding capacity. The decision allows the airline
to sell tickets in the Dominican Republic and transport passengers back to
Canada on tickets bought in the Dominican Republic. Air Transat spokeswoman
Rachel Andrews announced the service would start in mid-December. Air Transat is
the leading Canadian charter airline. They operate between Halifax, Quebec City,
Montreal, Toronto, Saskatoon, Edmonton, Calgary and Vancouver.
Skyservice Airlines of Toronto offers service to Halifax, Moncton, Montreal,
Ottawa, Toronto, Windsor, Thunder Bay, Winnipeg, Regina, Saskatoon, Edmonton,
Calgary and Vancouver. And Ottawa-based Zoom Airlines would fly to Halifax and
Ottawa.
