Canadian Regional Adds Frequency to Key Markets.

CALGARY, Alberta--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Nov. 21, 1997--Canadian Airlines Co (TSE:CA.) (Alberta Stock Exchange:CA.) (VSE:CA.) Beginning December 1, 1997, Canadian Regional Airlines will add frequency to a number of its key western markets, including Comox, Cranbrook and Portland, OR.

An additional flight each business day will be added between Comox and Vancouver, increasing the daily flights to five, from four, in each direction.

Cranbrook will see an increase from five to six frequencies per day to Vancouver, and an increase to four flights per day, from three, returning to Cranbrook.

The most significant news comes in the Vancouver-Portland market, where a fourth rotation has been added each day. "With a new early morning flight out of Portland into Vancouver, Canadian Regional significantly improves Portland's link to the Canadian Airlines Asian and North American networks out of our Vancouver hub," says Canadian Regional's manager of Marketing, Peter Grobauer. "It is very encouraging to see expansion in this market just a little over a year after we initiated the Portland service."

Canadian Regional Airlines is a member of the Canadian Airlines' family, headquartered in Calgary, Alberta. Canadian Regional operate a fleet of twin-engine turboprops and Fokker F28 jets to 43 communities from Vancouver Island to Quebec City, as well as Seattle, WA; Portland, OR; and Raleigh-Durham, NC.
