Bigger Plane Coming to Kingston Aiport

The City of Kingston insists that the extension of the main runway at the Norman Rogers Airport is already paying off.

Air Canada will start using larger planes to service the airport: a Dash 8-400 will service nine flights out of YGK this month, and a Saturday Kingston to Toronto flight from January 12 to March 23.

These planes have more seats, and larger carry-on bins than the Dash 8-100 and 300, which usually fly out of Kingston.

"Air Canada bringing in this larger plane signals a bump in customer demand," says Rick Reed, manager of Kingston Airport. "As efforts to modernize our airport continue, we look forward to more developments of this kind," adds Reed.
