Air Canada (AC, Montréal Trudeau) and Sky Regional Airlines (Montréal Trudeau) have announced they have concluded a ten-year extension to their existing capacity purchase agreement (CPA), effective April 1, 2017.

"This 10-year extension to the existing capacity purchase agreement with Sky Regional Airlines underscores our confidence in our Air Canada Express partner to provide a seamless operation and customer experience on behalf of Air Canada in a number of our key domestic and transborder regional markets on a cost-competitive basis," said Kevin Howlett, Senior Vice President, Regional Markets and Government Relations at Air Canada.

"With its fleet comprised exclusively of E175 jet aircraft that has grown to 25 in recent years, Sky Regional strengthens Air Canada's competitive position in the rapidly evolving North American regional markets as low-cost operators continue to grow, both in Canada and the United States."

According to the ch-aviation route database, Sky Regional's services for Air Canada currently focus on flights to select Canadian cities as well as major US metropolises from each of Montréal Trudeau and Toronto Pearson.

In addition to Sky Regional, Air Canada's other capacity purchase providers include Jazz Air, Air Georgian, and Exploits Valley Air Services, all of which operate regional Air Canada Express flights for and on behalf of Air Canada.
