BC travel made easy: 10 reasons flying to Victoria just makes sense

Third week-day flight from Pacific Coastal Airlines gives travellers even more options

Whether your travels take you to the provincial capital for business or pleasure, getting there has never been easier.

Need more reasons to hop a comfortable, Pacific Coastal Airlines’ 1900 D Beechcraft from Kelowna to Victoria? Here’s 10!

It’s quick. Non-stop service is just 65 minutes from Kelowna (YLW), airport to airport, in fact!

It’s convenient. Located on southern Vancouver Island, Victoria International Airport (YYJ) gives you easy access to Victoria, of course, but also lovely Sidney by the Sea, the Island’s wild West Coast and north to the Cowichan Valley and beyond.

It’s affordable. Time is money, whether you’re maximizing your vacation or your work day. Take a pass on the five hour-plus drive and ferry ride with a flight that gets you to your destination in just over an hour!

It’s flexible. With a new, third week-day flight added, choose from an early 8:45 a.m flight from Kelowna, the new mid-day 3:45 p.m. flight, or the early evening option, leaving YLW at 6:55 p.m. Various weekend flights round out the options.

It’s easy. Leaving from Kelowna, find easy parking at YLW, with various options based on your length of stay. In Victoria, public transit, shuttles, taxis and car rentals are readily available onsite.

It’s productive. Build work-time into your travels with free WiFi and business workstations in both Kelowna and Victoria airports … or just keep Facebook friends updated on your holiday!

It’s local. Based in Richmond at YVR’s South Terminal, Pacific Coastal Airlines has been connecting British Columbians for more than 50 years.

It’s good for business. Greater Victoria is one of B.C.’s busiest metropolitan areas, with a thriving, diverse local economy … plus numerous links with the Central Okanagan’s bustling business community.

It’s accessible to Island recreation. As a four-season destination, Southern Vancouver Island offers visitors year-round outdoor recreation and golf opportunities, not to mention cultural activities, renowned shopping and dining, and so much more!

And then there’s the wine. The Okanagan isn’t the only region where wine is a local highlight. From the Saanich Peninsula to the Cowichan Valley, numerous award-winning wineries and cideries, plus a host of craft breweries, welcome visitors year-round.
