A scheduled air service to your front door on Vancouver Island makes owning here so much more convenient and cost effective.
Comox, B.C. (PRWEB) September 20, 2011
Comox Bay Marina and Residences will now be a fly-in-fly-out resort following a partnership between the marina and Harbour Air that will change the Comox real estate market.
Harbour Air is now operating three round trip flights per day from Vancouver Harbour to Comox Bay Marina and Residences. Passengers can step off the airplane on the doorstep of the resort.
“This is a very unique perk for owners at Comox Bay Marina and Residences,” Michael Hawitt, president of Howard Land Group, says, “A scheduled air service to your front door on Vancouver Island makes owning here so much more convenient and cost effective.”
At less than $200 per round trip, and a mere 45-minute flight from Vancouver Harbour, the flights are quickly gaining in popularity for residents in Comox Bay.
“After people calculate the time spent waiting for a ferry and the nearly two hour crossing, the cost of the ferry and gas, flying starts to make a lot of sense,” Chad Wetsch, vice president of ground operations at Harbour Air says, “Especially when you land steps away from your door.”
Indeed with a round trip ferry passage costing more than approximately $150 for two people and their vehicle and nearly four hours on the water plus driving time, it is little wonder Harbour Air is booking at nearly 80 per cent capacity daily. The popularity of the flights is leading the air service to look at options for larger airplanes to meet the demand.
“We’re working with Harbour Air to help them increase their capacity for future flights because we know our homeowners will value this service and we want it to be continually available to them,” Hawitt says. “It’s not only convenient for those living in Vancouver, but for our owners that are flying in from Alberta and beyond.”

Prices start in the mid $200,000s for one and two bedrooms suites. Sizes vary between 608 sq. ft to 625 sq. ft for one bedroom suites and 760 sq. ft to 1105 sq. ft. for the two bedroom suites.
