Looks like that additional YUL flight came from YOW, as AC will no longer be offering YEG-YOW next summer.

Porter however has increased YEG-YOW to twice daily next summer, on top of WestJet's 6 weekly.
 
Great to see but I am wondering what is driving this change for a 285 seater - particularly for March.

"Air Canada during the month of March 2024 is adding Airbus A330-300 aircraft service on Toronto – Edmonton, where the widebody aircraft operates 1 round-trip flight between 01MAR24 and 29MAR24.

AC177 YYZ2025 – 2242YEG 333 D
AC178 YEG0005 – 0558YYZ 333 x7
AC176 YEG0005 – 0558YYZ 333 7

Air Canada operates this route 4 times daily."

 
Talking with my BIL in TO, Apparently there is a lot more traffic to YEG and will show in increased flights in the coming months. Porter seems happy here. Still would like to see increased YVR.

Condor adjusted the seasonal schedule slightly. “Frankfurt – Edmonton 17JUN24 – 06SEP24 2 weekly, new route (Service commences 1 week earlier than planned)”

 
Here is a link to a YEG Spotting Guide written by Alex Praglowski, who sometimes has Youtube videos of YEG. It gives detailed information on many different spotting locations as well as tips.

I came across the Spotting Guide link in the YEG Airport Spotters Facebook Group which some of you might be interested in. Lots of YEG aircraft photos and information on aircraft movements.
