Air Canada is increasing the capacity on some Western Canadian regional routes early next year, including an Edmonton-Winnipeg leg.

The airline announced Thursday the gradual introduction of new state-of-the-art Bombardier Q-400 Next Gen aircraft operated by Air Canada Jazz under the Air Canada Express brand on key markets from Calgary and Edmonton beginning next year.

The new ultra-quiet Q-400s will begin service in February to replace smaller Bombardier 50-seat CRJ aircraft. The planes will also include 74 all-leather seats with roomy overhead bins.

The upgraded Edmonton-Winnipeg route will begin service in May 2013.
