No Transat flights out of Comox nor Abbotsford this winter

Bad news now out .looks like Air Transat not making enough profit

so no flights to Mexico this fall from our little airport. They are concentrating on larger centres. Sorry Bucerias you may see fewer from Vancouver Island now.

I won't be going next year. Right now my concern is flights to San Jose Costa Rica and Managua. The American airlines seem to be dropping capacity

Yaz...

we thought the same...we have one layover for 2 hours ...we leave same airport ... a stop in Seatlle for 2 hours in the morning.... then direct from Seattle... we only have carry-on and will save $850.00..

that is one flight in money saved.... arrive about the same time as well..

karaokejim,

What airline are travelling with? I notice the westjet direct from Kelowna is up by at least $200. per person this year. We have always gone direct but may reconsider this year. The direct is around $980. per person......we paid around $700. last year......craziness!!! Our suite booked for Sunday arrival as well.

Hi Sun and Jolee......

We would fly from Kelowna to Seattle...with Horizon Air then a 2 hour wait and and Alaska Air....direct.....to PV.. the wait is good for brekkie.. (6 am depart) then leave Seattle at 9 am ...1 hour after the Westjet landed..

this is leaving on Jan 20.... and we return Feb 17..

difference right now is $425.00... for 1 person

and then my wife comes the following week... and hers is $400 saving.. a total of $825....

way too much... of a difference.. and the layover... is not bad...

and we have always been Canjet...Westjet....or any other over the years..

by the way..Canjet is now a Monday depart... am..instead of afternoon...and Westjet still Sunday... but I just keep seeing a whole lot of money to be saved...

we love direct..we love westjet... but I love money as well!!

Thank you Jim,

We are leaving on Feb 10 returning on March 3......we have always flown on a Sunday because Westjet has direct flights and had reasonable prices.......does not appear to be the case anymore. We actually live closer to Kamloops but Kelowna has better flight time and connects. I will check out Horizon........

I agree money saved is a good thing.......more to spend in PV!
