YQX Provincial's 20th Destination
Provincial Airlines today announced the launch of its new service to Gander commencing May 4th, 2015. This service will connect Gander directly with Goose Bay and St. John’s onboard Provincial Airlines’ full service flights.

Residents of Central Newfoundland will get to experience these benefits for their inter-provincial travel. Provincial Airlines also offers great connection fares to outbound destinations.
“We are very excited to be back in Gander and provide Central Newfoundland travelers with our exceptional service,” said Stephen Dinn, Vice President, Business Development with Provincial Airlines. “This is something we have worked towards for some time now and we’re very pleased to connect all of Newfoundland and Labrador once again,” added Dinn.
The addition of Gander now brings the airline to 20 destinations throughout Newfoundland and Labrador, Nova Scotia, New Brunswick and Quebec. The schedule for Gander service will be as follows:
- Flights operated Monday through Friday and Sunday
- All flights operated by Provincial Airlines Dash 8 fleet of aircraft complete with complimentary in-flight service, lavatory and leather chairs.
“We know travelers will appreciate having a new travel option with Provincial Airlines providing connectivity throughout their network, including many remote communities,” said Reg Wright, President and CEO of the Gander International Airport Authority (GIAA). “Provincial Airlines will provide more choice for both business and leisure travelers.”
