If you’re looking for a direct flight to the United States, unfortunately you won’t be able to fly out of the Greater Moncton Romero Leblanc International Airport.
But President and CEO Bernard Leblanc says they are hoping for the addition of several new flights,”We’d like to have a direct scheduled daily US flight, as well as a flight to Newfoundland. We had one in 2006 or so, and we would like to have one again. Sun Destination flights as well, we have done very well there and then a summer European type flight.”
Leblanc says the challenge is finding something that will last long term and will make money.
“Most of the time is finding a partner that has the appetite for it and then us being able to make the business case that they will make money at it. If it can’t make money, then it isn’t an option. They won’t develop it unless we subsidize it. Our challenge is not only finding a partner to do it but also finding an option that works long term so we don’t have to do this every two years and we can keep it forever.”
