Pacific Coastal Airlines flights & tickets

Originally established in the 1960s, Pacific Coastal Airlines provides commuter flights, offers air cargo services, schedules custom charter flights, and even operates a specialized division called Wilderness Seaplanes. Its modest 25-plane fleet ranges from three-passenger Cessna 185s to Saab 340 aircraft that hold 30 or more travelers. Hubs are located at Vancouver International Airport and Port Hardy Airport.

Pacific Coastal offers highly personalized service and has regularly scheduled flights to more than 65 locations within British Columbia, more than any other airline. Wilderness Seaplanes connects you to over 50 destinations along the Central Coast.

Why Fly Pacific Coastal Airlines?

How to Check In

Pacific Coastal's counter is located in the South Terminal of Vancouver International Airport. Please arrive 45 minutes before departure time. Your entire reservation can be cancelled if you don't arrive at least 20 minutes before your flight.

Baggage Allowances and Fees

Pacific Coastal allows 23 kg of checked-in baggage per customer. You can bring as many individual pieces as you like, so long as they weigh no more than 23 kg altogether. Multiple carry-ons can be taken but must collectively not exceed 11 kg or the maximum dimensions (23 cm x 40 cm x 55 cm, including handles and wheels). If space limitations for your particular aircraft are exceeded, carry-ons will be checked at no additional charge. Guaranteed baggage allowances up to 91 kg can be purchased through the airline or your travel agency.

Pacific Coastal provides a convenient plane side valet service for larger carry-ons. Simply look for the Valet sign. Your belongings will be waiting for you when you deplane.

Children under 2 years of age fly free when accompanied by an adult. Though there's no baggage allotment for kids, one car seat and one stroller can be taken along, free of charge.


Since Pacific Coastal has a variety of aircraft in their fleet, leg room and other spatial information is hard to predict. Also, seating arrangements are not available online. If you prefer an aisle or window seat, you should make arrangements by phone.

Booking Fees

Pacific Coastal recommends booking your reservation online, where you can also arrange hotel stays. If you have questions or special requests, contact the airline toll-free at 1-800-663-2872. There are no extra charges for booking by phone. Pacific Coastal has very flexible policies in regards to changing flight arrangements or obtaining refunds for unused tickets.

Pet Travel

Pacific Coastal prides itself on its humane and flexible pet policy. Your four-legged friend can be checked in as either baggage (up to 31 kg) or as cargo. Carry-on pets require a small fee. They must be in soft-sided kennels approved for air travel and not exceeding the dimensions of 43 cm x 25 cm x 25 cm. Carry-on pets and their kennels can go up to 11 kg. To ensure optimum arrangements for your pet, contact the airline directly by phone.
