The Campbell River Airport is welcoming back commercial service.
On June 2nd, nine passengers made their way from Vancouver to Campbell River aboard a Pacific Coastal flight.
Airport manager Tyler Massee says new measures have been introduced to ensure the health and safety of both passengers and staff.
“Our city facilities have undergone enhanced disinfecting and cleaning processes,” Massee says. “Our security process has been enhanced as well.”
Pacific Coastal is currently running a limited commercial service in both the morning and evening every Tuesday and Thursday, with flights operating along the Vancouver-Campbell River-Comox Valley route.
To ensure appropriate physical distancing in the terminal building, access will be restricted to passengers and staff.
All passengers must wear a face mask when entering the security screening area and during flights until further notice.
There will be no changes to curbside passenger drop off or parking in designated areas.
Both Tuesdays and Thursdays, the airport terminal building will be open to the public from 7:00am until 6:00pm.
The first flight will arrive at 8:30am and depart at 8:50am, with the second flight arriving at 4:45pm and departing at 5:05pm.
