WestJet Brings the Island to YVR

Today, WestJet announced new, year-round daily services from Vancouver International Airport (YVR) to Nanaimo Airport (YCD) and Comox Valley Airport (YQQ), starting on December 14, 2017.

“This is another great connection from our long-standing partner, WestJet,” said Craig Richmond, President & CEO, Vancouver Airport Authority. “Thanks to these new services, our passengers will have more options when travelling domestically. This will further grow WestJet’s hub out of YVR, connecting people and products to B.C. and beyond.”

“WestJet is looking forward to providing Nanaimo and Comox with improved connectivity into the broader WestJet network,” said Brian Znotins, WestJet Vice-President, Network Planning, Alliances and Corporate Development. “In addition, WestJet Encore’s Bombardier Q400s offer an affordable, quick and comfortable option for leisure and business travellers looking to hop back and forth between the island communities and British Columbia’s largest business centre and airport.”

Vancouver was among WestJet’s five original destinations when it launched service in February 1996. Since then, WestJet has grown to offer 36 non-stop routes with more than 70 daily flights operating out of YVR.
