The Alberni Clayoquot Regional District is continuing its efforts to lure WestJet to the Long Beach Airport.
The regional districtâ€™s Long Beach Airport Advisory recently met with WestJet network planning analyst Chris Jackson to discuss the airlineâ€™s potential future at the airport, according to Ucluelet Mayor Bill Irving.
â€œ(Jackson) gave us ideas on what kind of resources have to be at an airport for WestJet to consider it so the advisory took that into consideration,â€ Irving said.
Irving suggested there could be possible linkages between WestJet commuter flights from either Comox or Nanaimo and Long Beachâ€™s existing airlines.
â€œGood opportunity; lotâ€™s of things happening there that I think will be very much appreciated by the folks on the West Coast,â€ he said.
