Richmond, BC – Pacific Coastal Airlines has decided to temporarily suspend all network operations on Sunday, January 2 and Monday, January 3 due to the rapid transmission of Omicron COVID-19 variant we are experiencing in our Operational Control Centre. Our teams have exhausted all options and resources before the decision was made to suspend operations for these two days.

“It breaks my heart to be impacting the travel plans of so many customers, yet we are left with no viable alternative at this time,” says Pacific Coastal Airlines’ President Quentin Smith. “We are taking this quick and necessary measure to protect the integrity of our long term schedule and safeguard our operation.”

Pacific Coastal Airlines flights on Saturday, January 1 will operate as scheduled. Scheduled flights will resume on Tuesday, January 4.
