Panoramic views of Surrey and White Rock make Harbour Air’s latest flight service a thrilling experience.
The company launched its new Pitt Meadows-to-Victoria route on Sept. 22, connecting the Fraser River to the busy inner harbour of B.C.’s capital.
On a recent weekend trip, it was a smooth 35-minute flight for the DHC-3 Turbine Single Otter seaplane. My son and I enjoyed the amazing views as the plane climbed high above the river due south, then followed 176th Street toward the Peace Arch crossing and banked right, southwest over Birch Bay and the Gulf Islands.
The new service sees two round-trips per day, seven days a week.
“We are very excited to be a part of Pitt Meadows and surrounding communities,” said Greg McDougall, CEO of Harbour Air. “We have seen an increase in the number of residents from the area commuting to downtown Vancouver on a regular basis to use our existing service to Victoria. Adding a new service closer
to their homes just made sense for us, and we’re excited to offer them a timesaving option.”
From Pitt Meadows Regional Airport, passengers are either walk or are driven in a van to the river dock to board the seaplane.
The airport is located five minutes west of Golden Ears Bridge. For flight details, visit Harbourair.com. email@example.com
