Island Express Air To Fly YYJ To YQQ
Growing up, making the trip from the Comox Valley to Victoria was a tedious three-hour or more journey. Though highway expansion has cut the time down a bit, sometimes driving still takes longer than time allows for. Train travel and express bus are options, but as of September 5, 2010, flying will get you down south in a snap.

Island Express Air has been making the trip between Victoria and Nanaimo for close to a year, but travelers wishing to connect up to the Comox Valley would have to be re-routed through Abbotsford. With the launch of this route, a quick 10-minute stopover in Nanaimo will have you between Victoria and the Comox Valley in a mere 45 minutes for only $99.
Adding the route only makes sense as the Comox Valley airport serves the entirety of the North Island and has become a hub for Mexico-bound flights in recent years. This scenic trip will be available between Victoria and the Comox Valley six days a week, Wednesday being the exception. Visit Island Express Air’s online for more information and to lock in your reservation.
2. I’m once again fundraising for the BC-SPCA’s Paws For A Cause, aiming to raise $2,000 by September 12, 2010. As of today, I’ve already reached 25% of my goal and have little more than a week to go! Please consider donating to my effort and support this worthwhile cause.
