Astraeus to launch St. John's-London connection

Press article CBC News:
An English airline is launching a year-round service between St. John's and the United Kingdom, filling a void created last fall by Air Canada. Astraeus Airlines will fly from St. John's to Gatwick each Tuesday, Thursday and Sunday.

"We are a niche carrier," said managing director Hugh Parry. "We constantly look for emerging and rapidly developing sectors … and we're seeing exciting opportunities in this province." Astraeus has been flying charters between Gatwick and Deer Lake for three years, primarily through contacts with Humber Valley Resorts. In recent months, it introduced consumer flights as well.

Wednesday's announcement provides the resumption of year-round service between St. John's and London since Air Canada decided to provide only spring and summer flights.
