At this time, WestJet has reduced the frequency of service on some of the routes in and out of YQQ, and passengers are advised to check the airline’s website for schedule changes and further updates.

“Our primary concern is the safety and well-being of our passengers, our employees, our tenants, and the communities we serve,” said Comox Valley Airport Acting CEO Alex Robertson. “We are working to adapt to the temporary suspension of air service, and ask for your patience until such time as normal operations resume.”
