Air Canada will use slower turboprop plane on Victoria-to-Calgary flight

Starting in the spring of 2014, Air Canada will use the slightly slower but larger Bombardier Dash 8 Q400 NextGen turboprop aircraft for its flights between Victoria and Calgary.

The flights will take a bit longer, but the new planes offer more comfort compared to the CRJ aircraft being used right now. The new planes also seat 74 passengers compared to 50. Other benefits include more room, bigger overhead bins, all-leather seats, and less engine noise.

The new turboprops fly at a lower altitude, which means the flights will take about five minutes longer than the current planes. This shouldn’t bother travelers, according to a spokesperson for Air Canada: the airline expects passengers “will be delighted” with the Q400.
