Media Advisory/CHARTERED FLIGHTS: 2016 Royal Tour to Canada of Their Royal Highnesses The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge

OTTAWA, ONTARIO--(Marketwired - Sept. 12, 2016) - Their Royal Highness The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge will tour Canada from September 24 to October 1, 2016. They will make seven official stops, including one in Bella Bella, British Columbia (September 26) and one in Haida Gwaii, British Columbia (September 30).

Since flight access to both Bella Bella and Haida Gwaii is limited, we have organized chartered flights at cost recovery for an extended group of media to travel return on the same day. This group will be selected by a draw based on media type (print media, radio or television).

All Canadian media representatives who wish to apply for the draw must be accredited and must express their interest by email to no later than 8:00 p.m. EDT on Thursday, September 15, 2016.

The application for accreditation can be accessed online at

The following details must be included in the application:

  • Name and outlet;
  • Type of media (for example, print, radio or television); and
  • Preferred destination (Bella Bella or Haida Gwaii).

Applicants will be informed on September 16, 2016, if they have been selected from the random draw.

Please note that all details are subject to change.
