Regional airline that connects 16 airports around BC, suspending all operations

BY , Mar 20, 2020 8:24 PM - REPORT AN ERROR

A regional airline that connects 16 airports around BC, from Cranbrook to Prince George, Massett and Tofino is suspending all operations effective Tuesday because of concern about COVID-19.

Pacific Coastal Airlines says the delay until Tuesday gives travellers a chance to get home or make other plans, and the suspension will continue until at least May 3rd, when it will be reassessed, if conditions allow.

President Quentin Smith says there was no other choice, given the rapidly deteriorating situation and the need to be socially responsible about halting the spread of the new coronavirus.

Pacific Coastal, which has more than 350 staff, says it will continue to operate WestJet Link under the guidance of WestJet.
