Valet Service

Pacific Coastal Airlines offers planeside valet service as an option for our customers to stow their carry-on bags. Due to the smaller dimensions of overhead storage and under seat space, passengers may place larger carry-on items on a planeside cart before boarding. These items will be identified and returned to the cart for retrieval at the foot of the aircraft stairs as customers deplane. Look for the Valet sign and find your bags waiting as you deplane. Fragile or high-value items must be carried into the cabin with you, as long as they fit the carry-on dimensions of the aircraft. They should not be left on the planeside cart.

Medical Oxygen

Pacific Coastal Airlines accepts passengers’ medical oxygen in the form of compressed oxygen cylinders and portable oxygen concentrator devices onboard the aircraft. A maximum of one oxygen cylinder per passenger may travel as long as the following conditions are met:

  • The cylinder does not exceed 5 kg gross max or is an FAA approved Portable Oxygen Concentrator
  • The cylinder can be safely and securely stowed under the seat in front of you
  • Medical documentation is provided at check-in confirming the medical requirement
