PAL Airlines launches flights from Fredericton to Ottawa and Halifax

Connecting to loved ones and business meetings got easier today with the launch of new flights from Fredericton to Ottawa and Halifax by PAL Airlines.

“These are key markets for our region, and the connection to Ottawa is especially important for government and military travellers,” says Fredericton International Airport Authority President and CEO Johanne Gallant. “PAL Airlines are a great Atlantic Canadian company and we’re thrilled that they’re expanding their offerings here at the Fredericton International Airport.”

For travellers connecting beyond Halifax and Ottawa, PAL Airlines offers a seamless booking experience through their interline agreements with both Air Canada and WestJet. Through their travel agent, connecting passengers will be able to purchase a single ticket, check their luggage at departure, and connect hassle free between carriers for onward travel to domestic, transborder and international destinations.

“PAL Airlines is excited to continue growing our presence in Fredericton with these new flights serving Ottawa and Halifax,” said Calvin Ash, President of PAL Airlines. “With Canadians ready to start travelling again, we’re looking forward to welcoming passengers back on-board with our award-winning service and proud of how we are able to help the recovery in Atlantic Canada by introducing new destinations to our network and enhancing connectivity for our customers.”

“PAL Airlines expanding their service in Fredericton shows they have a great deal of confidence in our region,” says Kate Rogers, Mayor of Fredericton. “It’s an indicator of what we’ve known all along; Fredericton is well on its way to recovery and we’re coming back in a big way.”

The Ottawa flight operates on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays, while the Halifax flight operates Monday to Friday. These complement PAL Airlines’ existing flights from Fredericton to Deer Lake and St. John’s.
