Airline takes Comair route


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

A route served by Comair before its pilots went on strike is being picked up by the regional subsidiary of Air Canada, the first time a competitor has filled a service void left by the labor dispute.

Canada Regional, Inc. announced Friday that it was beginning service between Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky International Airport and Toronto on June 4. “We're always looking at new routes and we did a lot of analysis before,” said Air Canada Regional spokeswoman Debra Williams. “But there certainly is a situation where there is no service between Cincinnati and Toronto, and we're glad to step in.”

The Toronto flight — on a 63-seat Fokker F-28 — will run twice a day except Saturday until July, when it will begin seven-day service.

It will be the only direct, non-stop service between the two cities. Comair had operated nine daily flights between the cities.

Ms. Williams said her company planned to keep flying the route even if Comair settles with its pilots.

Comair officials had no comment on the Air Canada announcement.

There were no talks or negotiations scheduled between Comair and its pilots Friday, the 54th day of the strike.
