June 30 will see the last regular flight departing from City Centre Airport, something that Rob King, owner of Northern Air, looks at as an opportunity as the airline switches its Executive Flight Centre to the Edmonton International Airport on July 4. King said that they must keep positive because if they are negative about the transition, then that won't be good for business. The move does not come as a surprise as the airline has known about it since 2007, when they received their first 5-year operating license.
King said that most of his customers prefer the flights operating out of the downtown airport and he would have preferred that, too. The airline flies four daily flights between Edmonton and Peace River. King said they don't have a choice but to make the switch and he just hopes they will continue to serve the customers they have been serving. On the plus side, passengers have easier access to the main terminal,making connections easier, but the travel time to downtown Edmonton will be greater.
