Comox Valley Airport introduces flights to Bella Bella

The Comox Valley Airport has announced the addition of a new service from Comox to Bella Bella with Pacific Coastal Airlines beginning Tuesday, July 8.

“We have a number of passengers that travel to and from Bella Bella for work and this service will really improve their commute,” said Comox Valley Airport CEO Fred Bigelow.

Passengers will be able to fly direct to Bella Bella from Comox, with a brief stop-over in Campbell River, significantly reducing travel time on a route that used to involve flying through Vancouver and switching planes.

“Our flights between Vancouver Island and Bella Bella provide an efficient and competitively priced travel option for residents who are looking for better access to services, and for companies conducting business between the two regions,” said Pacific Coastal Airlines’ vice-president of commercial services Spencer Smith. “Adding Comox to the schedule will further strengthen this route and increase the benefit to the local economy.”

The flight will depart Comox at 11:05 a.m. Monday through Thursday. On Friday, Pacific Coastal will be adding an additional flight to Vancouver from Comox, also departing at 11:05 a.m.
