It was a pleasant and very interesting flyover to the Island. I was amazed at how many islands lie between the Island and the mainland. The crew were very friendly and kind. Iona

What You'll Get

Getting out of the house is often hampered by the fact that most houses are located inside a bigger and fancier house. See sights outside of the house outside of your house with today's Groupon: for $85, you get a two-hour Flightseeing tour from Island Express Air (a $272 value). Tours depart daily from Abbotsford Airport. Check Island Express Air's schedule for times.

Island Express Air's skilled sky guides pilot passengers on two-hour round-trip airborne tours affording bird's-eye views of British Columbia's lower mainland and of southern Vancouver Island. Ensconced in cabins accommodating 8 to 10 passengers, fliers take off from Abbotsford Airport to take a low-flying look at rolling hills, dipping valleys, and passing flocks of levitating swamis. Large windows provide panoramic prospects of diverse terrain such as Mt. Baker's snow-capped peaks, the Fraser Valley's flowing rivers, and Point Roberts's meandering coastline. Aircraft touch down on Vancouver Island, where fliers can choose to either end their journeys or make the round trip back to Abbotsford. Each double-engine Piper Navajo aircraft is certified for all weather conditions and is equipped with XM Satellite GPS technology to ensure smooth cloud surfing. Cartoon cricket sidekicks and kids younger than 2 years old may take to the skies free of charge.

About 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.
