Rumours of commuter routes from Victoria airport unconfirmed

Victoria International Airport might host WestJet commuter routes to smaller communities

WestJet might be looking at bringing a smaller aircraft to the airport.

“WestJet is looking at a new type and a smaller type of aircraft that is typically used for routes of 700 miles or less,” airport authority CEO Geoff Dickson said. “It allows them to look at some of the smaller markets that might not be served by their existing [aircraft] which is the [Boeing] 737.”

Dickson said routes could include Victoria to Vancouver, Kamloops and Prince George, for example.

WestJet public relations manager Robert Palmer wouldn’t confirm any details.
