Air Georgian Beechcraft 1900D review
Before I booked this flight I had never heard of the Beechcraft 1900D. I saw it show up in Google Flights and I thought it'd be an interesting aircraft. It is an Air Canada branded flight that is operated by Air Georgian. That means that for check in I had to go to the Air Canada counter and if you have Start Alliance Gold status or a membership with the Maple Leaf Club, you get access to the Air Canada Maple Leaf Lounge.
The Canadian Rockies International airport of Cranbrook lies right in the Rocky Mountains just past the border in British Columbia. The airport is popular for people playing golf in summer or people who like snow sports in winter. Of course, being quite remote, it is also a great way for people living in the area to go to Calgary or Vancouver.
Unfortunately, Air Canada has announced they will discontinue the route between Calgary and Cranbrook as of end of April 2019 and I'm really happy that I got to experience this cool flight!
