Coronavirus Precautions (March 9, 2020)
Safety is always our priority!
While private charter flying limits exposure to crowded commercial airports and decreases risks for contracting flus and viruses (including Covid-19), our Safety and Operations team has been closely monitoring the developing situation with Covid-19. As always, our passengers’, employee’s and the community’s health and safety continues to be our top priority.
Following recommendations from Vancouver Coastal Health, Fraser Health, the World Health Organization, the Centre for Disease Control and Prevention, Transport Canada as well as the Federal Aviation Administration we have developed and implemented a comprehensive plan to guide our response to the virus. This plan will allow for continued monitoring and response to the situation.
While the cleanliness of our aircraft has always been important, we have made arrangements to deep clean our aircraft after every flight. Furthermore, any aircraft suspected of being exposed to anyone known or suspected to have Covid-19 will be cleaned by a qualified team in accordance to the applicable guidelines. Additionally, we have now included prior travel inquiries when booking a reservation. This additional protection is designed as a precaution to help ensure peace of mind to all of our customers.

New Air Travel Option for Metro Vancouver
Affordable Charter Flights on Offer from a Metro Vancouver Airport You Likely Know Nothing About.
DELTA, BRITISH COLUMBIA (NOVEMBER 19, 2019)
Air West Charters Inc. is a new air carrier offering charter services out of the Boundary Bay Airport in Delta, BC. Air West operates a 6-passenger turbo-prop King Air 90 aircraft, which offers a new affordability price point for private travel from Vancouver.
With a range of 600 nautical miles (approximately 1100 km), Air West Charters can currently fly direct from Boundary Bay to over 80 airports throughout BC and Alberta, with U.S. destinations to be offered in early 2020. “The ability to fly direct to such a wide variety of airports can save our clients several hours, or even days, on a business or leisure trip, and that is a large part of our value proposition”, says Blair Parrant, the Operations Manager for Air West Charters.

The Boundary Bay Airport is located about 7 km Southeast from the George Massey Tunnel, and provides a particularly welcome alternative for travelers located south of the Fraser River. While not as well-known as the larger Vancouver and Abbotsford International Airports, Boundary Bay provides an opportunity for easy and fast boarding due to its relatively small size. Air West boasts the ability to have their passengers in the air within 20 minutes of arriving at the airport.
The decision to use the King Air 90 was a strategic one. It has a significantly lower operating cost than competing jet charter aircraft. The lower operating cost, combined with the lower overhead associated with operating out of a smaller airport, allows Air West to offer a competitive rate for charter flights. While the Metro Vancouver population continues to grow, Air West is offering a more financially attractive air charter option from an underutilized airport.
