COVID-19 UPDATE: Harbour Air Resumes with a Reduced Flight Schedule

Daily flights now operating between Vancouver, Richmond (YVR South), Victoria, Nanaimo, Sechelt, Salt Spring Island and Maple Bay 

Over the past 38 years, Harbour Air has become a vital transportation link for coastal British Columbia. During the past couple of months, we have also seen the impact our service reductions have had on the communities we support. We know that “returning to operations” is not a “return to normal.” As we move forward, we are working hard to ensure that we are providing the safe, essential travel services you’ve come to expect from Harbour Air. 

The safety of our employees, their families, our passengers and our communities is of the utmost importance to us. Please rest assured, we have adopted stringent safety measures that exceed both Transport Canada and Health Canada’s recommendations. We have introduced vigilant cleaning and physical distancing protocols, suspended scheduled flights and reduced our operations across the Province. Below is an update on flights and services currently available from Harbour Air, as well as an overview of our enhanced safety measures.

Prioritizing Passenger Safety

For the safety of our team and our passengers, we will continue to enforce the following conditions:

  • All ground and flight crew will have their temperature checked upon arriving and departing at the workplace.
  • Passengers will be required to complete a health declaration form before travel and may have their temperature checked using a no-touch thermometer.
  • Passengers will be provided with gloves and masks, required to be worn for the entire flight and while in terminal.
  • Our front line team may deny boarding to any passenger whom they believe may be unfit to travel.
  • We will continue to follow the stringent cleaning and sanitation protocols in place and provide ample access to hand sanitizer in all terminals as well as pre- and post- flight.
  • We will offer no touch payment, having increased our tap payment limit to $250.
  • We have installed plastic dividers at check-in and visual markers in terminals to enforce physical distancing.
With these measures in place, please be assured that flying the coast is still, and will forever be, our passion.
We are eager to start operating all of our routes and see all of the faces that have supported us over the years, however just like every other business right now, it may be some time before we are able to do so.  For that, and for the people and communities that have relied upon our service for years, we apologize and hope you understand. We will continue to diligently monitor passenger demand and communicate as soon as we can add more flights and get back to full operations.
