The Comox Valley Airport welcomes WestJet Link and an enhanced summer schedule

Today marks the re-start of WestJet's service to Vancouver and Edmonton, along with a new summer schedule that includes non-stop Saturday service to Toronto.

"The Comox Valley Airport has been well served by WestJet in the past, but this new summer schedule brings us to a whole new level. WestJet Link features the comfortable 34 Seat Saab Turboprop to Vancouver's main terminal, which along with the return of non-stop service to Edmonton, and increased frequency to Calgary connects YQQ to Western Canada's three domestic hubs," said Airport CEO, Mike Atkins. "The new schedules have been optimized to provide better connectivity, allowing passengers to travel to and from Vancouver Island without overnight delays."

YQQ has seen an upswing in passengers since the regional travel restrictions lifted on June 16th. "We have the capacity to bring families together again this summer, but need the domestic travel restrictions to be lifted to allow those planes to be filled", said Atkins. "It is our hope that this recovery will be given the go-ahead July 1st."

  • WestJet Link service 2x daily to Vancouver
  • WestJet Encore service 3x daily to Calgary, 5 weekly non-stop flights to Edmonton
  • WestJet non-stop to Toronto on Saturdays
