Central Mountain Air Adds Flights to Alberta and BC

July 9, 2020

SMITHERS – Following the safe and successful July 7th relaunch of scheduled service to five British Columbian cities, Central Mountain Air (CMA) announced the resumption of flights between three additional Alberta and British Columbia destinations: Fort Nelson (YYE), High Level (YOJ), and Edmonton (YEG). While the new route schedule does not commence until September 14th, 2020, flights are already available for booking on their website.

“We are very pleased that CMA is working toward restoring scheduled air service to the community of High Level,” said High Level Mayor Crystal McAteer. “CMA has provided a valuable service to our community and been a valued corporate sponsor. The Town recognizes the toll that COVID has taken on our businesses and our citizens. We are aware of the affect this virus has had on air carriers and greatly appreciate CMA’s effort to restore our access to this important mode of travel.”

In response to customer demand, flights currently running between Fort St. John, Kamloops, Kelowna, Prince George, and Terrace on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays will be changed to Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays effective August 9th, 2020.

CMA is also enhancing its existing booking policy to provide customers with friendlier cancellation options. Passengers booked on their Flex fare classes are eligible for refunds to their original form of payment up to 72 hours before their flight, without any extra fees.

“CMA is proud to lead the Canadian airline industry with this refund policy,” said Bob Cummings, CMA’s Chief Executive Officer. “Our customers are responding to unprecedented change and need this peace of mind. We also plan to lead the industry in terms of our flight scheduling approach,” said Cummings. “We are committed to running our schedule as published, we built the schedule to maximize our confidence in minimizing the need to combine, cancel or change flights.”

Northern Rockies Regional Municipality Mayor Gary Foster was delighted with the announcement stating, “CMA is a valued transportation service provider to Fort Nelson as the hub of the Northern Rockies, and the resumption of CMA flights is a welcome step on the road to the new post-COVID-19 normal.”

Established in 1987, CMA is a Western Canadian privately owned and operated company. www.flycma.com.
