Please do not call the terminal (YQQ) Comox Valley Airport Commission's Administration office for assistance with tickets, re-scheduling, refunds, baggage or airline specific issues as our administration staff do not have access to airline booking systems, or passenger ticket and flight information.

As always, our staff and YQQ Ambassador volunteers are available in the terminal to direct passengers to airline representatives, with counters staffed ninety minutes ahead of departing flights. See www.comoxairport.com for current flight departure times.
