LAVAL, Que. – Canadians dreaming about becoming a space tourist now have another choice.
Space Expedition Corp. and XCor Aerospace have signed a deal with Quebec travel agency Uniktour to offer suborbital flights in the Quebec market.
A similar deal is in the works for the rest of the Canadian market and is set to be announced in the coming days in Toronto.
Uniktour president Philippe Bergeron is already booked for a suborbital flight this December, which could make him the first Canadian to live such an experience.
“I can’t wait to see the black sky during in the day and I can’t wait for see the curvature of the Earth and to be propelled by four rocket engines,” he said Friday.
