Integra Air is shutting down direct Cranbrook to Calgary flights after less than a year of service that began in early January due to low passenger loads.

According to a press release from the company, there have been fluctuations in passenger loads, with increases occurring in July and August.

However, passenger loads dipped afterwards, and the company was forced into making the decision.

“We are unable to sustain the air service with the current passenger loads,” read an Integra Air press release. “We are very thankful to those who have supported us in the past with this endeavour and appreciate all of the help throughout the past year of service.”

All travel that has been booked through the company will be honoured. The last routes will be flown on Oct. 31, 2016 before shutting down permanently.

The service offered two daily flights to and from Calgary on Monday, Wednesday and Friday, with single return flights on Tuesday, Thursday and Sunday on a Jetstream 3100 aircraft.
