Elite Air­ways be­gins new route

The Guardian (Charlottetown) - - ATLANTIC -

HAL­I­FAX - Af­ter a bumpy start, Elite Air­ways’ in­au­gu­ral non-stop flight from Port­land, Maine, to Hal­i­fax is set to touch down Thurs­day. The launch of the new route, aimed at busi­ness and leisure trav­ellers, was de­layed two weeks due to a glitch with a com­puter reser­va­tion sys­tem.

Elite Air­ways spokes­woman Re­becca Ay­ers says the de­but flight is ex­pected to take off from the Port­land In­ter­na­tional Jet­port at 1:15 p.m. and land at Hal­i­fax Stan­field In­ter­na­tional Air­port at 3:30 p.m., lo­cal time. She says the twice weekly, 75-minute flights on Thurs­days and Sun­days will be aboard a 50-seat Bom­bardier CRJ200 jet and cost US$99 one-way.

Ay­ers says the ticket price is all-in, with no ex­tra fees for flight changes, a first checked bag or on­board snacks and bev­er­ages.
