LONGUEUIL, QC, March 4, 2013 /CNW Telbec/ - Serge Charron, President of
PASCAN Aviation, has confirmed to the management at Montréal-Mirabel
International Airport (CYMX) the pending arrival of regular flights to
eight (8) destinations: Québec City, Sept-Îles, Fermont (Wabush),
Baie-Comeau, Havre-Saint-Pierre, Mont-Joli, Bonaventure, and
The new service, which will start April 1, is made possible by a
partnership between PASCAN and Hélibellule FBO, which owns a private,
modern and comfortable terminal at Mirabel. Hélibellule FBO President
Valérie Delorme stated that "our ability to welcome PASCAN passengers
to our facilities brings added value to our range of services."
According to Mr. Charron, "the increase in the number of passengers
traveling to the resources regions provides us with incentive to offer
better schedules for our regular customers residing on Montréal's North
Shore. Many people who work for mining and related companies are
especially pleased with the addition of these new, regular flights from
a private terminal at the Mirabel airport."
In Mr. Charron's opinion, Mirabel will become an important hub in the
coming months for connections to other destinations. He states:
"PASCAN's mission is to provide connections between the resources
regions, and between these regions and major urban centres. Since it
was founded in 1999, our company has played a key role in Québec's
economic development. The arrival of PASCAN at Mirabel fits in
perfectly with our mission."
This new service at Mirabel represents an investment of $4.5 million and
will create more than 15 jobs starting in spring 2013. ATR-42 planes
will be used for all flights out of Mirabel. Hélibellule FBO's private
terminal is located at 12655 rue Service A-4, Mirabel, J7N 1G7.
