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.

“This new service will provide another choice for island residents to access the mainland, particularly those that want to fly onto additional destinations within the expansive Air Canada route network,” said Fred Bigelow, CEO of the Comox Valley Airport.

“We are delighted to launch our newest regional service at the Comox Valley Airport next spring and we look forward to welcoming customers from the Comox, Courtenay and Campbell River areas onboard Air Canada Express flights operated by Jazz Aviation,” said Kevin C. 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.”

The Comox/Vancouver route will be operated by Jazz Aviation LP under the Air Canada Express brand using a 50-seat, made-in-Canada Bombardier Dash 8-300 aircraft. Flights are available for sale starting today and flight times are as follows:
