News Release - May 2, 2022

The Comox Valley Airport is happy to announce increased service to Vancouver on Air Canada Express.

On Monday, May 2nd, Air Canada increased frequency to and from Comox (YQQ) with additional Air Canada Express service connections via Vancouver Airport (YVR).

"The return of 3 x daily Air Canada service with crew overnighting in Comox provides the essential connections our region has been waiting for since the start of the pandemic. By adding an early morning departure and an inbound evening flight, passengers have options to travel nearly anywhere in the world in a day. Increased choice is always welcome news, and further signals a cautious return to a more normal travel experience," said Airport CEO Mike Atkins.

With Flair Airline's service to Calgary and Edmonton, Swoop's soon to start service to Edmonton, and the return of a full summer schedule from WestJet, including the popular non-stop service to Toronto, Comox's options for safe and affordable travel just keep growing. We look forward to speeding you on your journey through YQQ!
