Resources need to be allocated elsewhere, airline spokesperson says
Canadian North will prematurely end its direct flights between Toronto and Iqaluit after the Labour Day weekend, according to a company spokesperson.
The last direct flight will take place Sept. 4.
The cancellation of the new route is partly due to low demand, said Kevin Kablutsiak in an email.
“It no longer made sense to keep our limited resources and capacity on the Toronto route,” he wrote.
“Our resources are stretched to their limit right now and it’s important we deploy them where our northern customers need them most.”
The airline had announced in February it would offer direct flights between Nunavut’s capital and Toronto Pearson International Airport from June 3 to Sept. 30, on Fridays and Sundays. Prices varied, but started at $951 round-trip.
