Pacific Coastal Airlines adds non-stop Vancouver-Tofino service

A new daily non-stop flight between Vancouver and Tofino has been added to Pacific Coastal Airlines’ spring schedule.

The new flight starts April 3, though the spring schedule will begin March 4 and be in effect until June 3.

The new flight will operate seven days a week, leaving Vancouver International’s south terminal at 3:15 p.m. and arriving at the Tofino/Long Beach Airport at 4 p.m. It leaves the west coast of the Island at 4:30 p.m. and arrives in Vancouver at 5:15 p.m.

The airline will use a 19-seat turboprop Beechcraft 1900 to service the new route, but the company might upgrade to a 30 or 34-seat Saab 340A or 340B aircraft should demand increase.

Other changes to the spring schedule include a new early-morning connection between Cranbrook and Comox, three daily connections between Cranbrook and Victoria, twice-daily morning and afternoon flights between Port Hardy and Vancouver and the return of the Saturday flight between Vancouver and Masset starting May 4.
