Pacific Coastal Airlines has been providing regularly scheduled, charter, and cargo services in British Columbia for almost forty years. Started in Bella Coola by one-time truck logger Daryl Smith, it is now the sixth-largest airline operating at Vancouver (YVR) (based on outbound seats), and third-largest in takeoffs and landings. It is also a major supplier of charter services to fishing lodges and the resource sector.
Operating from its administrative center at Vancouver International Airport (YVR) South Terminal, Pacific Coastal employs more than three hundred people across fifteen bases in British Columbia.
Pacific Coastal Airlines’ seaplane base operates out of Port Hardy on Vancouver Island and from there provides service to a large number destinations along the coast.
