Second non-stop flight added between Prince George and Victoria

Starting June 23 flyers will have the choice of flying in the morning or afternoon

Operating morning and afternoon from Sunday to Friday, the two non-stop flights will operate on the 19-seat Beechcraft 1900D, adding more headroom and resulting in a 27 per cent increase in overall seat capacity.

In a statement, Pacific Coastal says the added flight will provide Prince George travellers the ability to connect to more destinations through Victoria’s airport, while Victoria-based business and government passengers may benefit from same-day return travel opportunities.
