CASCADIA IS FLYING MADE EASY
Posted April 8, 2022 12:01 pm
There is a new player in the skies above the Okanagan. Its official mascot and air-traffic call sign is Bigfoot, after the legendary giant that has been in the mystical and spiritual roots of British Columbia for many generations. Its goal is to provide fun, flexible and affordable air service for residents up and down the valley.
Cascadia Air is already flying direct non-stop flights out of Penticton to three Lower Mainland airports and provides direct flights to Tofino and Campbell River from the Lower Mainland. The airline is now working on plans to begin services out of Vernon.
“We call ourselves a local destination airline. There are no surprises to our prices,” CEO Tristina Anderson says. “We carefully designed our services to make it affordable and hassle-free for people to travel and enjoy wonderful destinations such as the Okanagan. Our aircraft are small, and we intentionally designed our seating capacity to carry six passengers versus eight. This gives our passengers more legroom, comfort, and luggage capacity. We fly just high enough where passengers can take in the beautiful B.C. mountains and scenery from the sky.”
