What airport fly into for Port Alberni?

From New Jersey, we would like to visit an old friend in Port Alberni, Canada (in Spring 2012). Can someone recommend which airport to fly into i.e., Vancouver, or would it be more affordable and even easier to fly into Bellingham, WA and then rent a car? Any info is greatly appreciated. Thank you.

A person needs to fly into Vancouver BC and connect with KD Air to Qualicum Airport. They will transport you to Port Alberni.

Bob...not sure where you came up with the notion that the OP was going to fly their own plane from New Jersey to Port Alberni!

And you need a passport to get INTO Canada...

The drive from Victoria is also very pretty and does not involve catching a ferry. Vancouver is nice, if you enjoy the ferry crossing. Could also connect from either city to Nanaimo or Comox, bringing you closer to Port Alberni (roughly 1 hour or so from Nanaimo airport, which is actually South of the City of Nanaimo by about 20 minutes). Approximately 1.25 to 1.5 hours from Comox. Any way you decide to fly, you will have to rent a car.
