This April 1st, Pacific Coastal Airlines is proud to celebrate our 25-year anniversary of providing flight service to Bella Coola (QBC) and Anahim Lake (YAA). At Pacific Coastal Airlines, our mission is to connect communities and provide top-quality, reliable, and accessible air travel. We recognize that our success over the past 25 years would not have been possible without the support of the local communities, our valued passengers, and our business partners. We are grateful for the support from the people and organizations who have been with us throughout these years, since our first flight in 1998.

Bella Coola is located in the heart of the Great Bear Rainforest, one of the last remaining untouched rainforests in the world. This destination is truly a hidden gem that boasts a stunning coastline, majestic mountains, and lakes. The region is home to a rich cultural history and diverse wildlife, including grizzly bears, eagles, and salmon that offer the local community rich resources while providing the perfect getaway for adventure seekers. Anahim Lake is a gateway to some of the most breathtaking scenery in the world. The area is famous for its abundant fishing opportunities and is the perfect destination for outdoor enthusiasts. Visitors can explore the stunning Tweedsmuir Provincial Park, go fishing in the crystal-clear waters, or take a scenic flight over the Chilcotin Plateau. The Anahim Lake area also offers opportunities for hiking, horseback riding, and wildlife viewing. Our commitment to serving Bella Coola and Anahim Lake has allowed us to witness firsthand the beauty and wonder of this region and the warmth of its people.

Bella Coola and Anahim Lake are not only scenic destinations but also important hubs for local communities, businesses, and tourists. Our scheduled daily flight service, charters, and cargo options have been designed to meet the needs of these communities and visitors, enabling them to connect to other destinations across British Columbia. The support and loyalty we have received from the communities, passengers, and business partners over the past 25 years have been humbling. It is an honour to serve these incredible destinations over 2 decades and become a sentimental part of the communities’ travel options.

To celebrate this special milestone along with our Spring promotion, we are offering a 15% discount on all destinations for a limited time (on sale until 11:59 p.m. PT on April 9, 2023 for travel between April 10 – June 24, 2023).

Again, we would like to express our sincere appreciation for the continuous trust that our passengers have placed in us for their travel needs.
