Air Saint-Pierre

Alex Praglowski recently posted a sequel to the video in our 'Featured Video' section entitled 'I flew from Canada to France... in an HOUR?' (click the image below to view). 

In the video Alex relates his short flight from St. John's, Newfoundland (YYT) to Saint Pierre (FSP) in Saint Pierre and Miquelon, a self-governing territorial overseas collectivity of France in the northwestern Atlantic Ocean.

Air Saint-Pierre currently operates a single (very busy) ATR 42 for 'international' flights and a Reims-Cessna F406 on the inter-island service. Its ATR 42 was delivered in December 2020. 

I have been quite surprised to learn that the airline has been in continuous operation since 1964, originally with a code-share agreement with Eastern Provincial Airways.

It flies up to four round trips a day to the other airport in the collectivity, Miquelon. It operates scheduled services to four airports in Canada, typically operating one to two weekly services to Montreal, three weekly services to St. John's, three to four weekly services to Halifax and two weekly summer services to the Magdalen Islands.
