Region of Waterloo International Airport - YKF
If you know the flight number you can look them up on flight aware to see if they were actually cancelled or not.

I can't find any evidence of flights on this route on Flight Aware. In fact, I can barely find any FlyGTA flights other than a couple from Barrie and one from Niagara a week ago. The Waterloo Regional airport site claims there's a FlyGTA flight coming in from Billy Bishop tonight "on schedule". Mysteriously, FlyGTA's own flight tracker says the same flight was scheduled for a different time but was cancelled. Very mysterious.

Yea I'm not seeing much either. Only flight I see on ykf site is the westjet flight (don't I wish they had one that went to Halifax), and on Billy bishop all I see are Porter and ac flights. Looks like though they don't use the main terminal there.

Any search of their callsign (according to Wikipedia is hrn, or homerun) comes up empty.

Edit: all their registered aircraft is here. The few I searched for kept saying either Toronto or St Catherine's

I emailed flyGTA and asked if they were, in fact, sold out or if there were other issues.  They responded: "Unfortunately, all flights to Kitchener are not available."   That answer is not very helpful.  So at this stage I have no idea what is going on with flyGTA.

You can play around with the raw arrival/departure information with this url: https://www.waterlooairport.ca/Common/Se...vals=false

Doesn't really tell us anything though. There are some "missing" flights (consider West Jet shows flights up until the 22nd) but it's possible that there's something to do with when flight information gets updated/added.

I would guess this simply means there is no demand for those flights so they are simply not running them?
