Air Canada to Double YQQ-YVR Service

March 16, 2017

Air Canada (AC) will increase its current Comox-Vancouver service of two flights per day
to four flights in preparation for the summer season. The extra capacity resulting from
the service addition is well timed to meet YQQ’s peak summer demand. Flights begin
May 19th and June 1st, effectively allowing travellers to take advantage of Air Canada’s
extensive network.

Particularly welcome is an early morning departure from YQQ and late evening return.
“This is huge,” comments airport CEO Fred Bigelow. “Not only does it solve the early
morning departure issue (previously served by CMA), but also fixes a long standing
problem of connecting returning passengers back through YVR in the evening.”

“It’s great to see Air Canada making this kind of investment in our market”, continues
Bigelow. “Hopefully the passenger loads will prove strong and encourage continued
growth in frequency and capacity on this route.”

The additional flights will operate daily, except Saturday, by Air Canada Express using a
50-seat, Bombardier Dash 8-300 aircraft.
