"It's terrific news that Pacific Coastal is extending their non-stop service between Prince George and Victoria to seven days a week," Prince George Airport Authority president John Gibson said in a press release. "Thirteen non-stop flights a week will make it easier to do business or visit family on Vancouver Island."

Starting on Oct. 6, the airline is also adding additional passenger capacity to its Friday and Sunday evening flights. A 30-seat Saab 340 will be used on the route for those flights, instead of the standard 19-seat Beachcraft 1900.

"We have seen a significant amount of passenger growth on this route since we introduced a second daily flight on June 23," Pacific Coast Airlines vice-president Johnathan Richardson said in a press release.
