Helijet adds extra flights between Vancouver and Nanaimo

Helijet adds extra flights between Vancouver and Nanaimo

Helijet says they will be adding another service from the Island and the Lower Mainland amid lowered visibility due to smoke and increased demand.

With B.C. wildfire smoke settling into most of the province, passengers going to and from the Island have faced delays and cancellations over the past few days, but commuters and travellers may be seeing some relief with new services being added.

Helijet says they’ll be adding one extra return midday flight between Vancouver Harbour and Nanaimo terminals because of increased passenger traffic.

With smoky conditions seeing flights cancelled connecting the Lower Mainland and Vancouver Island, Helijet has been able, for the most part, to maintain its passenger service schedule despite reduced visibility due to smoke.

Seating is limited and bookings can be made through their website for those looking for an alternative route off the Island.
