New air service starts this month

  • May. 8, 2006 6:00 a.m.

A new air service will soon connect the islands with Prince Rupert. Starting May 25, Sandspit Adventures will offer twice-a-week service using a 16-passenger turboprop plane between Sandspit and Prince Rupert.
“I think the potential is here for it and the need is here for it,” said Mike Grounds, manager of Sandspit Adventures which will offer the service.
Mr. Grounds says the service is the result of transportation problems created by the sinking of the ferry and will run until mid-September, although it could last longer if required.
Passengers pay $129 one way, which includes transportation from Queen Charlotte to Sandspit and the Prince Rupert airport to downtown. The service will operate on Thursdays and Saturdays.
More info is available at 1 888 637 2210.
Other airlines serving the islands include Air Canada Jazz, Pacific Coastal (Vancouver), and North Pacific Seaplanes (Prince Rupert).
