Alberta government reduces PWA stake.

The Alberta government has reduced its stake in Pacific Western Airlines to just under four per cent. The province sold 1.35 million common shares of the airline at $10.50 each.

After purchasing 99.9 per cent of PWA in 1974, the province began selling its shares last year. While the government has relinquished majority ownership, it has retained residual control of the airline by passing a law prohibiting any other party from owning more than four per cent of the voting stock. The government may own any amount.

City Express has indicated that it will begin Dash 7 service within three months to Atlantic City and to Newark while Northeastern International Airways, based in Fort Lauderdale, says it will begin daily service to Mirabel and charge $100 one way.

Nordair is slashing its regular fares by a third on scheduled flights between Ottawa, Toronto and Hamilton to meet the competition from upstart City Express. Nordair's new one-way fare is $69 on the Ottawa-Toronto and Ottawa-Hamilton routes, down from $103.
