New Air Commuter Service From Wiarton Considered

The Township of Georgian Bluffs has launched a survey on the feasibility of scheduled passenger service between Wiarton Keppel International Airport and Toronto.

Mayor Alan Barfoot says scheduled flights would allow residents and business people to reach the GTA in about 30 minutes.

He says the service would make the region more accessible, and that would help grow social and economic prosperity in the region.

Georgian College marketing students will be at various events throughout February collecting information for the survey.

The results will be analyzed and presented to interested carriers.

The survey will run throughout February and is available online at www.georgianbluffs.ca and www.grey.ca.

Barfood says it only takes a few minutes to complete and everyone who enters has the chance to win a 50-minute sightseeing tour from Wiarton Aviation Services.
