  • $245 for a one-hour private charter flight for up to three people (a $490 value)

Flight Seeing tours depart in a twin-engine Piper Navajo from Abbotsford Airport and jet to Vancouver Island, first heading to Victoria and then hugging the coast to Nanaimo. Passengers drink in aerial views of Mount Baker, the Fraser Valley, and the San Juan Islands, and pilots occasionally dip low enough for tourists to spot whales. Tours start at either 7 a.m. or 4 p.m. and typically end at Abbotsford Airport, although passengers can also opt for a one-way flight and disembark at another of the airline’s airports.

Private charters in the fleet's single-engine plane allow one, two, or three people one full hour of flying over any location they choose.

Island Express Air

It often takes 12 minutes just to leave the house, remember you forgot your keys, and go back for them. In the same amount of time, Island Express Air’s signature snappy flights can shuffle passengers all the way from Abbotsford to Vancouver. The airline also services Victoria and Nanaimo with their fleet of professional aircraft, outfitted with cutting edge XM Satellite GPS technology that keeps pilots apprised of weather and terrain clearance.

The airline complements its regularly scheduled local flights with airborne sightseeing tours. From the windows of intimate planes equipped with a maximum of 10 seats, tourists drink in views of the Gulf Islands, Mount Baker, and other landmarks, dipping low enough to glimpse whales as they power-wash the plane’s underside with their blowholes. Alternatively, the airline’s private charter flights can whisk passengers to a destination of their choice.
