"I just wanted to let you know how much I enjoyed my flight to Victoria on Sunday afternoon.
I was extremely impressed with everything and will definitely do this again.
I have also told everyone what a great and courteous service this is.
"Great experience! Saved travel time, would definitely use your service again!"
I was one month late for my flight with Island Express. That's right- one month late! I had accidently booked a date exactly one month earlier than I had intended. After explaining MY error, I was offered a seat. No new fare, no penalty, no hassle. That's small carrier service! Thank you again.
"Great flight! Views were lovely and flight crew professional! We are recommending to all our friends."
Terrific service for commuters from Alberta . Thank you for your professional and direct service to and from Nanaimo on our recent travels from Victoria to Nanaimo. How simple, well priced , and convenient to go from Calgary and on to Nanaimo in such a short time !
Feel free to use this as references as I can't say enough about the professionalism from your pilot and for whats its worth the fun we experienced flying our short distance. I am still telling the story!
"Love your airline, and wish you the best of luck in staying around for a long time!"
"Thank you for the great service you and your staff have provided me with over the last couple of weekends. It’s taken the enormous pressure of 8 – 10 hours travel out of my weekend itinerary travelling to and from Pitt Meadows / Victoria. You have no idea how convenient this is for me. Thanks again for the great service."
"Nice crew, good service."
"Very helpful with an 81 year old. Thank you."
"Wonderful to have service from Nanaimo to Abbotsford. Wish you continuing success."
"Great flight! Beats the ferries."
"Everything was super!!!"
