Pretty exciting news!!!! Nanaimo is now going to be having daily ﬂights to Seattle with a new-to-us airline, Kenmore Air.
Our beloved Reg at the Nanaimo Airport, who does a fantastic job of taking care of things there, called us to paint the new space for the new airline.
We arrived and were met by Reg who took us to the space to be painted. I have to say the treatment we always receive by the airport staff is second to none! We got to hear some of the hustle and bustle which goes with any upcoming changes… All very big news for Nanaimo.
I remember, and I think I might be dating myself a little bit, when I came to visit my parents when they ﬁrst moved to the Island and the airport was no more than a trailer. And now it’s a pretty big deal! Air Canada was the only airline ﬂying and there were many restrictions and a lot of fog cancellations. Now the runway has been extended and equipment upgraded to allow for more air action!
Then Westjet joined our newly renovated airport about a year ago (and we got to paint their space too). This has been a great addition to allow travelers options, especially all those northern workers who have to leave their families for stretches at a time.
And now lets welcome Kenmore Air and all the great ﬂights will get to enjoy with them. Let’s just keep growing and we will happily paint any new space that provide our mid-islanders with more travel options…
All I need now is for these airlines to get together and appreciate our beautifully painted walls with a ﬂy free for life VIP package… do you think that is too much to ask?
