Air Canada promising ‘very lowest fares’ to Fort McMurray evacuees, adds Alberta capacity

, Financial News

Air Canada said the airline has opened a separate counter in the Edmonton International Airport with additional staff to accommodate passengers traveling as a result of the fire.

Air Canada Inc. has added the equivalent of 31 Airbus A320 jets to its Alberta capacity to accommodate Fort McMurray evacuees who want to return home to Atlantic Canada or elsewhere.

The airline, which was chastised on social media last week for charging inflated fares to people fleeing the wildfire, is doing what it can to help those who were displaced, CEO Calin Rovinescu told the company’s annual shareholder meeting in Halifax Tuesday.

“We’re executing a plan to transport those fleeing from the fires from Edmonton or Calgary to their destinations and to support relief efforts,” he said.
