New plane route connecting Seattle, the San Juans and Victoria, BC
May 22, 2023
By Kenmore Air
With the summer travel season moving into full gear, Kenmore Air is pleased to announce its new land plane service connecting Boeing Field, Paine Field and Friday Harbor Airport with Victoria International Airport (YYJ), expanding on its long standing float plane service to Victoria---s Inner Harbour.
In addition to offering greater transportation options to Victoria, B.C. the new service, commencing on May 25th, will act as the only scheduled international service between the San Juan Islands and Victoria, B.C., filling a transportation gap left with Washington State Ferries - announcement that international ferry service will not resume until at least 2030.

The service will be offered using Kenmore Air's fleet of modern Cessna Caravans that operate under Instrument Flight Rules (IFR) allowing them to operate in limited visibility conditions and to provide increased service reliability.

Kenmore Air has operated land planes from Boeing Field for the past 17 years and Paine Field for the last year with scheduled, year-round service to Friday Harbor and Eastsound. Kenmore Air is now a partner with Alaska Airlines with flights originating from Paine Field bookable on alaskaair.com and eligible for Alaska Airlines Mileage Plan miles accrual.
