Central Mountain Air is temporarily suspending flights, beginning April 11.
Scheduled flights from April 11 through June 7 will be suspended, while charters remain available, according to an update on the airline’s website.
“As we continue to address the unprecedented challenges the current COVID-19 health crisis presents, Central Mountain Air (CMA) is taking dramatic measures to protect our business, employees, customers and the larger communities we serve,” the update states.
CMA has previously gone down to three flights in and out of Quesnel a week.
CMA is asking passengers to only contact the call centre within seven days of their scheduled departure due to higher-than-normal call volume. If your flight is affected by these schedule changes, you can expect a call from the CMA reservations team.
The CMA call centre is available Sunday to Thursday from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. PDT.
“We thank you for your patience and understanding during this difficult time,” says CMA. “Rest assured our team is devoted to ensuring our serviced communities are impacted as little as possible. We will keep you updated on any future changes as the global COVID-19 situation rapidly develops, and we urge you to take the critical precautions outlined by the [World Health Organization] and Public Health Agency of Canada.”

Along with this change in CMA service, as of April 10, the Quesnel Regional Airport’s Main Terminal will be closed to the public until further notice.
