Travel between Vancouver Island and Vancouver just got a whole lot easier.

No more waiting in long ferry lineups or spending another night in a hotel after a day in the city. Vancouver Islanders can now hop a quick, convenient and affordable new evening flight between Vancouver International Airport South Terminal and the North Island, with stops in Comox and Campbell River.

Travel from Vancouver to the North Island in five easy steps:

Step 1: Enjoy a full day of business or shopping, or take advantage of later travel connections, knowing you can still make it home that night thanks to a new evening flight leaving Vancouver’s south terminal at 9 p.m. daily from Sunday to Friday.

Step 2: Make your way to the easily accessed YVR south terminal, a favourite for travellers who appreciate skipping the main terminal congestion. A free shuttle easily connects both terminals and parking and car rentals are close at hand. Heading home from a day in the city? Hop aboard the Canada Line SkyTrain in downtown Vancouver and be at YVR in just 30 minutes.

Step 3: Check in and relax before your flight in the comfortable, easy-to-navigate south terminal. Enjoy dinner at the in-terminal licensed restaurant, browse the gift shop or catch up on emails with free WiFi access at your fingertips.

Step 4: Board Pacific Coastal Airlines’ 19-seat Beechcraft 1900C for the quick flight home – just 35 minutes to Comox. Heading on to Campbell River? Sit back and enjoy the flight, knowing you’ll be home by 10.

Step 5: Deplane at either the Comox or Campbell River airports and enjoy a short drive home – all the better knowing you’ve made the most of your travel time. With fares competitive with other ways to get back to the Island, you’ll save hours on your travel time.
