The new charter airline Nextjet Canada will provide return flights on weekdays between Peterborough, Quebec, and Kitchener-Waterloo, beginning Monday, May 2, 2016. Tickets are available now.

“We are very pleased to have Nextjet Canada providing this new passenger service for the businesses and residents of the Peterborough region,” Peterborough Mayor Daryl Bennett says. “This is another example of the airport supporting economic activity in the region by serving as a convenient transportation link between major centres.”

Nextjet Canada will offer two return flights from Monday to Friday between Peterborough Airport and Pierre Elliott Trudeau International in Montréal, Gatineau-Ottawa Executive Airport, and the Region of Waterloo International Airport in Kitchener-Waterloo.

With all fees included, it will cost $99 for a one-way flight from Peterborough to Kitchener-Waterloo, $224.87 one way to Gatineau-Ottawa, and $253.12 one way to Montreal.

Depending on the demand, Nextjet may expand the number of flights and offer them on weekends as well.

“This service is a great addition to the airport which continues to grow,” says Trent Gervais, Airport Manager. “Flights between these four regions will benefit business, public service, leisure, and other travellers by providing convenient travel between Peterborough, Kitchener, Gatineau, and Montreal.”

According to NextJet Canada’s website, the company was created to offer affordable and hassle-free private flights for passengers and cargo for the same price of a regular flight.

Nextjet Canada is not associated with Stockholm-based NextJet, which is the largest regional airline in Sweden.

Nextjet Canada’s flights will be offered in partnership with Propair, which has a fleet of 12 turboprop aircraft with pressurized cabins and 100 employees — including 35 pilots.
