GATINEAU – M. Jean Lessard, President of the Board of Directors of the Gatineau Airport and Councilor for the Rivière Blanche District, and Mrs. Brenda Libby, Principal Director of Business Development at Pascan Aviation, are honored to announce that the people of Gatineau, the Outaouais Regions and Ottawa will now have access to the destinations offered by Pascan Aviation using the Gatineau Airport as a starting point. In addition, travelers already served by Pascan Aviation will have a much easier access to our region.
"This initiative will allow business, pleasure travelers, officials and other travelers to access most areas and major centers in Quebec. Passenger traffic will increase, and there will surely be more business opportunities that will arise " said Mr. Jean Lessard. "This agreement will further contribute to the synergy of the airport and the industrial park located just south of the airport."
"The agreement with the Gatineau Airport allows Pascan Aviation to expand its market in a significant way," said Mr. Serge Charron, President of Pascan Aviation. "Pascan Aviation will offer the 1.2 million residents of the Outaouais and Ottawa 14 destinations throughout Quebec, New Brunswick and Labrador."
Pascan Aviation and Gatineau Airport have signed an agreement, effective June 23rd, 2014.
"With a fleet of over 17 aircraft, a modern online reservation system, combined with more than 14 locations, the population of Gatineau and surrounding areas will be very well served," says Mr. Gaston Cloutier, Director General of the Gatineau airport.
"Today's announcement is good news for the Airport and for services offered to the citizens of Gatineau. I would like to highlight the work and focus of the President of the Corporation, Mr. Jean Lessard, to look at the business model of this important infrastructure", said Maxime Pedneaud-Jobin, Mayor of Gatineau. "This is an important step in getting closer to the profitability level and, concurrently, reducing the financial pressure on the City".
