Air Creebec improves its network of routes to connect all the Cree communities on the eastern and western shores of James Bay

Press Release – Aware of the challenges facing air travel for the Cree communities along the shores of James Bay, Air Creebec has decided to open new routes. Starting in the summer of 2018, travellers from the Ontario side will be able to fly from the James Bay coast to Montréal via Timmins!
Since last spring, the King Air has been replaced by the Dash-8 100 and transports passengers on all regular Air Creebec flights. This aircraft, which is more comfortable and can accommodate more passengers and a larger volume of freight, offers better service on all air routes originating on the James Bay coast.
Beginning July 9, 2018, the Ontario coast of James Bay will be connected to the other air routes on the Quebec side, with a stop in Rouyn-Noranda. From Timmins, passengers will be able to travel to Montreal with Air Creebec. The new stop planned in Rouyn-Noranda will offer two flights per day to Montreal-Trudeau every week day and once a day on the weekend. Air travel across Canada and around the world will be considerably simpler.
Mr. Matthew Happyjack, the President and CEO of Air Creebec, is pleased with this decision. “We are delighted to be able to connect all the Cree communities along James Bay shores to the new stop in Rouyn-Noranda. We understand the challenges of remote areas, and we are proud to participate in the economic and social development of the Cree communities and the Abitibi region.”
Ms. Tanya Pash, Air Creebec’s COO, favors the project. “We believe that this project will improve issues related to travel for the people of the outlying regions, and Air Creebec will remain attentive to travellers from all the regions that it serves.”
