Air Canada busy, but islanders have a choice

  • May. 30, 2005 1:00 p.m.

If you’ve found it difficult to book an Air Canada Jazz flight on or off the islands, or had to pay a premium for a seat, you’re not alone.
Masset Travel’s Casey Jarvis says it has been extremely difficult lately to find seats on the Jazz flight between Sandspit and Vancouver, and often only the “Y” fare is available. The Y fare will set you back $530 one way, although it is totally refundable.
Jazz will be flying two planes a day into Sandspit starting this Sunday (June 5), but Ms Jarvis said the afternoon flight is already sold out for many June dates.
“It’s very unusual, I’ve never seen it like this,” Ms Jarvis said.
Usually one or two flights a year are sold out, she said, but it’s already happened several times this year with the past three months being particularly tight.
There are some other options for travelling islanders, with Pacific Coastal and Hawkair both offering flights between Masset and Vancouver.
