Harbour Air plans to introduce year-round connections to Whistler via Squamish from Vancouver, the company has announced. Exact dates on when the routes will be operational has yet to be announced.
The company also plans regular flights between their flagship location in Downtown Vancouver’s Coal Harbour and Squamish once Oceanfront Squamish is constructed. Harbour Air’s dock is located on the east side of the new Oceanfront Squamish development and will be available for pick-up and drop-off service when connecting to a seaplane flight.
“Having a safe, protected and dedicated seaplane dock to service the Squamish community has been a goal of the company for many years,” says Harbour Air CEO and Squamish resident, Greg McDougall. “Squamish is a community that is thriving but struggles with limited access due to frequent highway interruptions. We believe that having a travel option for locals, businesses and visitors will help Squamish continue to prosper.”
With over 40 aircraft on the coast, Harbour Air will begin by offering on-demand flight service. From there, passengers can connect through on flights throughout Harbour Air’s network of routes such as Victoria, Powell River, Seattle, Tofino, and Kelowna.
