Victoria International Airport. Your gateway to Vancouver Island.
Victoria International Airport (YYJ) is the 9th busiest airport in Canada with over 1.5 million passengers per annum. Currently, Air Canada and Jazz have up to 21 departures daily with non-stop service to Vancouver, Calgary and Toronto. WestJet has 12 departures daily, including seasonal Toronto service, Edmonton, Calgary and Kelowna. Horizon Air links Victoria to Seattle with 5 daily departures and United Express offers twice daily non-stop service to San Francisco. Victoria is also served by Pacific Coastal Airlines, Orca Airways and Alpha Executive Air with 16 daily departures to Vancouver, Abbotsford, Nanaimo and Delta. Victoria is well served by Canada's air carriers with 60 daily departures and convenient non-stop or one stop service to every major Canadian city. The airport is situated approximately 25KM (15.5 miles) north of Victoria, which makes for a short taxi ride into the city. Shuttle service is available through a partner company to many of the major hotels and limited public transit service is provided by BC Transit. The terminal itself is small enough to be ultra convenient, yet very modern as extensive improvements and upgrades have been completed over the last five years.
