1986 - June 15th - Pacific Western inaugurates flights to Ottawa.

From the "CPAir News - News Alert" magazine issue dated January 1986.

The headline was "Airline's dynamic expansion continues" with the announcement that the first ever non-stop service by a North American carrier to the Peoples Republic of China to be launched April 29th 1986 when Canadian Pacific Air Lines inaugurates a new direct route between Vancouver and Shanghai, utilizing DC-10-30 equipment. We are not newcomers to the Pacific nor the China market. We have been flying the Canada-China route for more than 36 years.

The acquisition of Nordair adds (10) B737-200's our fleet. An agreement has been made with GPA Group in Shannon, Ireland to sell (3) B737-300 and involves the acquisition of additional used B-737-200 from the GPA Group.  Five B737-300's on order for delivery in 1987-88 has been cancelled with Boeing.
