Provincial Airlines

As evident from my last post, i did a little plane spotting this past weekend.  One of the great things about plane spotting, is when you catch an aircraft or airline that you have never seen before.

Well, this past Sunday, i was not disappointed.

Dash 8’s are pretty common fare at the airport, so it was no real surprise in seeing one taxiing.  However, upon closer inspection, i realized that i had never before seen the logo that appeared on the tail.


I then noticed the words just below the tail, “Provincial Airlines”.  Well, i must admit, in all the years i have taken photos at the airport, i have never seen this airline before.

Provincial Airlines is a regional airline based in St. John’s, Newfoundland and was founded in 1974.  They operate an air ambulance service, scheduled passenger service, cargo service and charter services.

PAL is the largest regional airline operated in Eastern Canada and has offices in Halifax and Happy Valley Goose Bay.  They serve 20 communities in Newfoundland and Labrador, Quebec, Nova Scotia and New Brunswick.

They have a fleet of 27 aircraft, with the Dash 8 series making up the majority of the fleet with 10 (different types).

It was certainly nice to add this airline to my growing collection of airlines that land at CYUL.

Who dares wins.
