Charter and cargo service airline Pacific Coastal announced it will increase service between Bella Bella and Campbell River with flights available three days a week, starting next month.

“It’s intended to serve two different purposes. The community of Bella Bella has a lot of connections to central and south Vancouver Island,” said Spencer Smith, vice-president of commercial services at Pacific Coastal Airlines. “As well there are many companies that do business in the Bella Bella area that have crew that live in Campbell River and this helps reduce some the amount of driving that they have to do.”

Pacific Coastal Airlines is the only carrier in B.C. to service Bella Bella, a town of about 2,000 people, with daily flights via Port Hardy. The new service will benefit mostly resource-based companies in the fishing, logging and energy sectors, said Smith.

A Beechcraft 1900 aircraft will be used for the service, flying on Mondays, Wednesdays and Thursdays. The airline will also base its seaplane in Bella Bella to provide connections to Klemtu, Ocean Falls and other locations in the area.

Pacific Coastal Airlines recently introduced a new direct flight between Cranbrook and Victoria last month and announced service from Cranbrook to Kelowna, which will begin November 18. The airline provides regularly scheduled flights to more than 65 destinations in B.C. and charter service to Western Canada and the U.S.
