How to get to | British Columbia

This is part of a series of blog entries on how to get to countries and places. Here is a link to the index. I plan to eventually cover every country and some other places. If you have a request for a particular country or place please use the Contact link at the top, or leave a comment.

British Columbia

Entry to British Columbia, Canada, is by land, by ferry or cruise ship, by train, or by air. Most international flights are to/from Vancouver airport, including the following airlines:

  • Star Alliance - Air Canada, Air China, Air New Zealand, Continental, Lufthansa, United, US Airways
  • Oneworld - American, British Airways, Cathay Pacific, Japan Airlines, Mexicana
  • Sky Team - Delta, KLM, Korean
  • Other selected - Westjet, Alaska airlines, some European and North American low cost airlines, EVA, Philipine Airlines

TIP Air fares to Vancouver are often considerably higher than to Seattle. However Seattle to Vancouver fares are very high so land travel may be best to take advantage - just watch out for border queues in weekends and at holiday periods.

TIP Distances can be large, so land travel to Alaska or other Canadian provinces takes considerable time.
