This new program offered by the Ministère des Transports du Québec, the PAAR, aims to make air transport between Quebec's major centers and remote regions more accessible.
A special fare for certain remote Quebec destinations has been established at $500 for round-trip flights and $250 one-way, including taxes. On our network, the destinations covered are Sept-Îles and Schefferville.
Before making a reservation on our online booking engine for these special rates, please note the following conditions:
Reservations for this special fare must be made through the booking engine of our website. It is not available through our call center.
This fare only applies to personal travel and not for business or work purposes. The ticket cannot be reimbursed by either an employer or a corporation.
Each passenger can book a maximum of 6 one-way tickets (3 round trips) per fiscal year, from April 1 to March 31.
Reservations can be made up to a maximum of 6 months before the travel date.
Tickets are valid for a period of one year.
The personal information collected during the reservation will be sent to the Ministère des Transports for the purpose of verifying compliance with the elements listed above.
In the event of a false declaration, the passenger may be excluded from the PAAR and will be responsible for reimbursing the sums paid by the Ministère des Transports to the carriers for the reduction in the cost of the ticket.
A limited number of subsidized tickets are sold monthly, therefore, the available quantity may have run out by the time you want to make a reservation. New tickets will be made available the following month.
The program is not retroactive, meaning, tickets purchased before the program came into effect will not be eligible for a refund of the fare difference.
This fare is only valid on scheduled flights, it does not apply to charter flights.
