A new way to enjoy the sights and sounds of the Pacific Northwest is now available thanks to a new partnership between Kenmore Air and Harbour Air to give passengers a lift between Seattle and Vancouver. The Seattle Times caught up with Kenmore Air CEO Todd Banks to find out what the experience was like. He said that passengers love the breath-,taking views they get in between the two cities with a great view of the Cascade Mountains on the coastline while getting to see the San Juan Islands and the blue Pacific on the other. But it isn’t just the scenery that has passengers raving about the seaplane service.
A shortened commute between Seattle and Vancouver was originally meant to be targeted at business clients given the various meetings and conferences that happen between the two cities. But that same shortened trip benefit is loved by tourists who have even more flexibility when they come to Seattle whether it’s for a sports event or just a weekend getaway. They no longer have to drive through heavy traffic to get between cities or try to get to the airport two hours before their flight. And when they land ashore in the seaplane, going through customs is also quick compared to what it would be on the road. So now if you were to visit the area and decide last minute that you want to head north and explore Vancouver Island or Victoria, all you would have to do is catch a ride with Kenmore Air.
