Hawkair is dropping its Prince Rupert route as of December 1.
Jay Dilley is president of Hawkair, and he says the regional airline is shifting resources to a new route out of Kelowna instead.
He says the new route is there for the long haul.
Dilley is hopeful flights to Prince Rupert will resume in the spring or summer on a seasonal basis.
He adds they’re always looking at project developments in the area, and says depending on demand, the route may be reinstated.
Hawkair will be contacting and making arrangements for passengers who have booked flights to or from Prince Rupert.
