Quikair Adds Montreal-Kitchener

Wed May 12, 2004 11:55 pm

As part of it's eastern expansion, Quikair, which recently launched an Ottawa-Kitchener route, will soon add Montreal-Kitchener on May 31st. Two flights will be offered each business day. This is the first time anyone will have ever offered direct YUL-YKF service.

The ADM has a news release highlighting all their new flights for the summer sked: http://www.newswire.ca/en/releases/archive/May2004/12/c1991.html

Looks like Transaero to Moscow is a go too.

QuikAir uses Jetstream 31's though I wonder if it is primarily the same operation that folded just a little while ago out of Calgary.

Just like on the YOW-YKF run, YUL-YKF will see J31s too. This route should do well. The Kitchener-Waterloo-Cambridge-Guelph area has a population of around 400,000. It's about time the get some air service.

Quikair has a couple of cool interactive maps on their website . They also list their planned future routes which include:

YOW-YTZ
YUL-YTZ
YQG-YTZ
