The Comox Valley Airport is pleased to announce that Air Canada will be returning to northern Vancouver Island with a new twice-daily, non-stop service from Comox to Vancouver beginning May 1, 2015.

Howlett, Air Canada’s Senior Vice President of Regional Markets.  “Customers can fly either point-to-point between Comox and Vancouver, or conveniently connect in Vancouver to and from our worldwide network at our Vancouver hub to destinations in Asia and the South Pacific, Europe, and our extensive North American route network.  All Air Canada flights offer Aeroplan accumulation and redemption benefits.”
