At nearly double the size of their past waiting lounge, Harbour Air’s Comox base now has a new facility for guests, filled with leather chairs, refreshments and more space to protect travellers from the weather.
Andrew McMillan of Harbour Air explained the new facility, which arrived on-site at their departure facility at the Comox Marina about a month ago, helps guests with their comfort and relaxation prior to their flight.
“People have made note we’re here for the long haul,” said McMillan, who added there have been a tremendous amount of people making the commute on the Comox-Vancover route.
He noted rather than taking the ferry, there are many people using the seaplane service to travel back-and-forth to Vancouver for medical appointments.
“You can be back by 1 p.m. the same day,” he noted.
With both the Otter and Beaver planes available to guests (depending on passenger loads), McMillan said that guests can now travel between Comox and Vancouver in comfort in as little as 45 to 50 minutes.
