Business soars at Northwestern Air

The company will soon begin offering service five days a week from YLW to Abbotsford BC and Red Deer, AB.

“This is great news for our passengers,” says YLW Airport Director Sam Samaddar.

“The more we can expand our inter-provincial reach the better. We have seen strong passenger loads on Northwestern Air and are pleased they have confidence in the market to increase their service to Red Deer and expand into Abbotsford.”

According to Northwestern Air, the new service schedule will begin March 3.

“When we started service last year, it was always our plan to increase our flights to YLW,” says Northwestern Air President Terry Harrold.

“We’ve built a strong business case and it is nice to see the passenger demand for this air service, adding Abbotsford just made sense”.

This mean YLW will now offer 66 daily non-stop commercial flights.
