Three reasons to beat the slow boat with a fast flight right now

Island traveller alert: A new evening flight from YVR to Comox Valley and Campbell River

Sponsored by Pacific Coastal Airlines | Impress Branded Content

No one on Vancouver Island would want to end the vacation of a lifetime with a long ferry trip and an even longer drive.

Make it a trip to remember from start to finish with a quick, convenient and affordable new evening flight from the easy-to-navigate Vancouver International Airport south terminal to Comox Valley and Campbell River.

Reason 1: It’s quick — just 35 minutes of air time to Comox.

Pacific Coastal Airlines’ inaugural 9 p.m. flight took off from YVR’s south terminal on April 2, landing in the Comox Valley at 9:35 p.m., and had its Campbell River travellers home by 10 p.m.. Now that’s a bedtime even jetlag can’t beat.

Reason 2: Convenient — No congestion or lineups, and an evening departure time

Flying to the North Island nightly from Sunday through Friday, the 19-seat Beechcraft 1900C makes getting home for vacationers and Vancouver day-trippers a breeze. Stay for a late dinner meeting, take in an afternoon ball game, or enjoy a full day of shopping, then head home via the YVR south terminal.

The easy-to-navigate south terminal is a favourite for travellers trying to avoid main terminal congestion, with parking, car rental and access to the Canada Line SkyTrain terminal close at hand. Inside, the in-terminal licensed restaurant, gift shop and free WiFi access are at your fingertips.

Reason 3: Affordable — You’ll save hours, and time is money.

More often than not, convenience costs. Not so with Pacific Coastal’s new 9 p.m. flights. At a price competitive with other ways to get back to the Island, you’ll save hours on your travel time.

The expansion of service to Comox and Campbell River speaks to Pacific Coastal’s commitment to B.C.’s coastal communities.

“As an airline with deep roots in British Columbia, we’ve been providing regularly scheduled service to the Campbell River and Comox airports for many years. The addition of these new later evening flights is a reflection of our continued commitment to the people who live and work in these, and other mid-island communities,” says Pacific Coastal Airlines’ president Quentin Smith.

Founded by one-time truck logger Daryl Smith in Bella Coola more than 50 years ago, Pacific Coastal is based at the YVR south terminal in Richmond. It provides regularly scheduled flights and cargo services to 15 airports and connects to more than 65 destinations in British Columbia in conjunction with its affiliate partner Wilderness Seaplanes in Port and charter services across western Canada and the U.S.
