Residents of the Comox Valley and beyond now have the opportunity to escape to warmer beaches twice weekly, thanks to a new flight schedule from the Comox Valley Airport.

The airport recently announced a new fall schedule with twice-weekly non-stop service to Puerto Vallarta with WestJet.

Commencing Saturday, Nov. 4, non-stop flights will depart every Saturday and Tuesday, with returning flights on Fridays and Mondays - doubling the direct service to sunny Mexico.

“The strong demand for service to Puerto Vallarta last season prompted WestJet to increase the non-stop offerings on this popular route, demonstrating WestJet’s ongoing commitment to Vancouver Islanders for flying out of YQQ,” said Mike Atkins, CEO of the Comox Valley Airport (YQQ).

“As the only non-stop sun destination available north of the Malahat, we look forward to seeing travellers from central and northern Vancouver Island taking advantage of the direct flights. While there are daily connecting flights to almost anywhere in the world when you are just looking for a sunny break, it is nice to avoid the busy hubs, particularly over the holidays.”

Additionally, the fall schedule from YQQ includes five daily flights to Vancouver, twice daily flights to Calgary, and daily flights to Edmonton.

Fall schedules come into effect after Labour Day, with Air Canada and WestJet adapting for seasonal demand to provide connectivity through all three hubs. Travellers are encouraged to book early for the best flight options.
