Some good news if you’re looking to do any sort of travelling this summer within B.C.

Central Mountain Air announced today (June 22) its returning several of its flights next month, including four services to-and-from Prince George. 

Operating three days a week, Tuesday through Thursday, CMA says its goal is to help re-connect communities after it temporarily suspended service in early April to help stop any potential spread of COVID-19.

“Over the coming months, our schedule will responsibly and gradually return, as we continue to navigate our way through these unprecedented times,” reads an update from CMA, with the new travel period set for July 6 to August 8.

“We look forward to providing travel and cargo operations that are essential and will enable re-opening of our economy, as well as connect you to friends and loved ones.”

Prince George residents will have the chance to fly in-and-out of YXS to Fort St. John, Kamloops, Kelowna and Terrace.

Public health guidelines and government travel regulations will be met on every flight, CMA says, citing passenger safety as its top priority.
