The Charlottetown Airport is supplying free colouring books to help pass the time in an effort to encourage passengers to show up two hours before early morning flights.

The airport has three flights leaving between 5 a.m. and 6:30 a.m., and is requesting passengers show up early to avoid delays.

Vanessa Smith, marketing and communications manager for the Charlottetown Airport Authority, said Air Canada and WestJet have a strict 45-minute cut-off time for domestic flights.

"There's really just a big push in the morning," she said.

A 1 in 750,000 chance: Windsor photographer snaps pic of 2 albino raccoons

A 1 in 750,000 chance: Windsor photographer snaps pic of 2 albino raccoons Unlike typical raccoons, albino raccoons have a genetic mutation that strips them of the traditional black and grey colouring. They are all-white, or off-white, including hands and feet. Ouellette, who owns a photography studio in Windsor, Ontario, spends a lot of time outdoors, photographing wildlife. He'd never seen an albino raccoon before, but said one of the two is really curious. "He comes to the ends of the branches and looks at me," said Ouellette. He's noticed that the other raccoon siblings seem to protect the albino ones.

"We have close to 500 passengers trying to get out between 5 a.m. and 6:30 a.m. The rest of the day the flight schedule is more nicely spread out throughout the day so we don't have that need as much."

Restaurant open early

Air Canada and WestJet's check-in counters will open daily at 3 a.m. and 4:10 a.m., respectively, to begin processing passengers.

Budley's Restaurant, both landside and airside, will be open between 3 a.m. and 3:30 a.m., Smith said.

There is also free Wi-Fi and an interactive Just Go wall, featuring photos of destinations around the world.

Dozens injured aboard Air Canada flight after plane hits turbulence.
MONTREAL — About three dozen passengers and crew were injured Thursday when an Air Canada flight travelling from Toronto to Sydney, Australia, hit severe turbulence and was forced to divert to Honolulu. Flight AC33 was about two hours past Hawaii over the Pacific Ocean early Thursday morning when "unforecasted and sudden turbulence" caused "minor injuries" for about 35 travellers and triggered a turnaround, Air Canada said in an email — though local emergency services highlighted nine "serious" injuries and 30 hospitalizations.
