- One roundtrip flight per day will be offered, leaving Helijet’s Nanaimo Heliport at 9:30 A.M. and arriving at the Port Alberni Airport approximately 20 minutes later (9:50 A.M.)
- The same-day return flight departs Port Alberni Airport at 10:30 A.M. and arrives back in Nanaimo approximately 10:50 A.M.
