Swan­berg Air ex­pands ser­vice

The Southwest Booster - - FRONT PAGE -

A promis­ing start to the re­turn of sched­uled air ser­vice to Swift Cur­rent has prompted Swan­berg Air to ex­pand from three to four day a week ser­vice start­ing im­me­di­ately.

Swan­berg Air is now fly­ing in and out of the Swift Cur­rent Re­gional Air­port on Mon­day, Tues­day, Thurs­day and Fri­day.

“The mar­ket in the south­west is def­i­nitely show­ing prom­ise so far,” ad­mit­ted Rich Wilde, Man­ager of Swan­berg Air. “Now that we have sparked in­ter­est, we want to do what we can to ac­com­mo­date that mar­ket and this is why we have de­cided to add an­other day to the sched­ule. We feel this change will be pos­i­tive and are open to do­ing what we can to meet the needs of the South­west trav­eler.”

Swan­berg Air of­fers daily re­turn flights to Regina and daily de­par­tures to Cal­gary. Also in­cluded on the sched­ule are flights to Red Deer and Grande Prairie, and soon to in­clude Este­van.

“This change is def­i­nitely a pos­i­tive one, but we have to keep in mind that Swan­berg is a busi­ness that must see a re­turn and if we don’t use the ser­vice it will be lost," noted Marty Sal­berg, Busi­ness De­vel­op­ment Of­fi­cer for the City of Swift Cur­rent. "We are en­cour­ag­ing peo­ple to do a lit­tle num­ber crunch­ing as they plan their bud­gets for 2010. For some, to fac­tor in the cost to drive with travel time away from the of­fice, pos­si­ble cost of ho­tel stays, etc. fly­ing may be a more fea­si­ble and ef­fi­cient way to do busi­ness”.
