recognize travellers' flight choices and flexibility were compromised after
Harmony Airways announced ceasing their operations and flights to these
locations. We are pleased to be able to provide additional frequencies to
these specific destinations to ensure guests have more options when booking
their trips. As we grow our fleet from 65 to 70 aircraft by year end 2007, we
are continually assessing where to put this capacity to meet the needs of
Canadian travellers."
