Portland-Nova Scotia flight revived
Travelers who want to fly from Portland to Nova Scotia will be able to use a new air service in March that will provide non-stop flights four days a week.
Paul Bradbury, director of the Portland International Jetport, said the airport was able to restore service to and from Yarmouth, Nova Scotia, thanks to a partnership with Auburn's Twin Cities Air Service and the operator of the Yarmouth airport, according to radio station WGAN 560. Passengers can board a seven-seat aircraft provided by the Auburn company and fly non-stop to Yarmouth on Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays beginning on March 15.
In December, Montreal-based Starlink Aviation canceled its previous air service from Portland to Yarmouth because it could no longer obtain federal subsidies to operate it. Last month, Air Canada said it will offer twice-daily service between Toronto and Portland beginning on May 17.
