Air Canada to introduce the only daily non-stop flights from Vancouver-Yellowknife

VANCOUVER, June 7 /CNW Telbec/ - Air Canada today announced that it will
expand flights to the diamond capital of North America with the launch of the
only daily, non-stop service from Vancouver to Yellowknife. Jazz will launch
seasonal service on December 1, ending April 2008, with 50-seat,
made-in-Canada Bombardier CRJ aircraft. Tickets are now available for
purchase.
"The introduction of the only non-stop flights from Vancouver to
Yellowknife links the vibrant and growing economy of Canada's north to Air
Canada's global network with convenient connections to and from Japan," said
Daniel Shurz, Vice President, Network Planning. "We expect these flights to be
popular with both business travellers from Vancouver as well as leisure
travellers from Asia. The Yellowknife to Vancouver fights will complement our
current services from our most northern Canadian destination to Edmonton and
Calgary."
Flights will depart Yellowknife at 09:05, and arrive in Vancouver at
10:40. Flights will depart Vancouver at 12:15, and arrive in Yellowknife at
15:45. Flights have been timed to offer convenient connections to and from
Tokyo, Osaka, and points within British Columbia.

Jazz operates a fleet of 58 CRJ-100/200s.

Montreal-based Air Canada provides scheduled and charter air
transportation for passengers and cargo to more than 170 destinations on five
continents. Canada's flag carrier is the 14th largest commercial airline in
the world and serves 32 million customers annually with a fleet consisting of
335 aircraft. Air Canada is a founding member of Star Alliance, providing the

Wow, YZF is really getting a tonne of flights. Maybe this was caused by the rumour of WJ entering the market in the next 12 months.

Hopefully the market isn't going to be to saturated.

My guess is that YZF-YVR will go year-round. This is a perfect route for the CRJ if yields are good,mind you it's a bit of a long flight in that aircraft (2:35 gate to gate). What's next on AC radar for YZF,perhaps seasonal service to YYZ?

So the question is........is some other route/frequency being cut to free up this CRJ, or is it just available because of additonal E190's coming online and taking over some routes??
