Heading Straight to the Island - WestJet Announces YVR to Nanaimo and Comox Service

WestJet's aircraft 

Thinking about your next holiday with the family already? WestJet has just announced new, year-round daily services to Nanaimo and Comox from YVR! The service will start December 14, 2017, allowing you to connect with your loved ones just in time for the winter holidays!

These services will provide passengers with more options when travelling domestically, while connecting more people and products to B.C. and beyond. The new services will use WestJet Encore’s Bombardier Q400s, providing both leisure and business travellers with an affordable, quick and comfortable option.

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.
