And the Planes Just Keep Getting Bigger
Thanks to our passengers, Air Canada aircraft will be getting bigger.
The current Dash 8 100 and 300 aircraft flying from London, which seat 37 and 50 passengers respectively will be replaced with Q-400 aircraft which seat 74 passengers.
“London has been a strong performer for Air Canada with a good mix of both business and leisure traffic. We increased capacity marginally this winter and the London market responded well, so we are adding more capacity for the summer beginning in May, with as much as 32 per cent more capacity in August,” said Peter Fitzpatrick, Air Canada spokesperson.
