Richmond, BC – Pacific Coastal Airlines is pleased to announce that it will be increasing flight service on the Vancouver International Airport’s South Terminal (YVR) to Tofino/Long Beach Airport (YAZ) route as part of its summer schedule adjustments.

Effective July 1, 2018 until September 3, Pacific Coastal will offer two daily flights from Vancouver to Tofino airport.

“This adjustment in seat capacity is due to an anticipated increase in demand during the peak summer season,” says Pacific Coastal Airlines Director of Business Development and Corporate Communications, Kevin Boothroyd. “The increased demand is due to enhanced global awareness of Tofino and Ucluelet as a travel destination as well as the recent shutdown of Orca Airways,” adds Boothroyd.

Effective July 1, 2018 until September 3 the adjusted summer schedule will include:

  • New mid-morning flights #1611 and #1612 on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday
  • New early-morning flight #1607 and #1608 on Saturday mornings
  • Improved connectivity to other Pacific Coastal destinations in British Columbia
  • Increased use of the 30 and 34 seat Saab aircraft, with flight attendant, onboard service and washroom

Customers can book flights with Pacific Coastal through their travel agent, online at, or by calling the airline’s reservation line at 1-800-663-2872.
