Dear Partners, we want you to be aware of the following information on air travel service from the Comox Valley.

Temporary Suspension of Air Canada, and Pacific Coastal Airlines Services

The Comox Valley Airport (YQQ) has been notified by Air Canada that service to YQQ will be suspended from April 1st to April 30th. Please see the Air Canada website for further details.

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