Flights to Dawson Creek to launch next month

Red Deer Airport Authority welcomes Northwestern Air who will start a new service between Red Deer Airport (YQF), Edmonton International Airport (YEG) and Dawson Creek (YDQ) on May 14.

The new service will operate on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays.

“This new destination allows us to provide convenient access to Edmonton as well serve the busy northern B.C. oil and gas markets,” said Gordon Bush, general manager, Northwestern Air. “We look forward to building this route and deepening our relationship with the communities of Central Alberta, Edmonton area and north eastern B.C.”

The service to Edmonton and then onto Dawson Creek represents a new destination for Red Deer Airport. This means more options for passengers, and greater opportunities for business and for tourism.

“Continuing to provide expanded air service is a key objective for Red Deer Airport Authority as we work to build YQF as an aviation gateway to the Central Alberta region,” said RJ Steenstra, CEO, Red Deer Airport Authority. “I commend Northwestern Air on their continued commitment to serving Central Alberta citizens and businesses with expanded air service.”

The service will operate out of the airport terminal building at both Red Deer Airport and Edmonton International Airport and Dawson Creek Airport.
