All passengers are required to show photo ID when checking in. On trans-border flights you are required to complete your booking form in full and be in possession of a current passport, including children and infants. You should also be in possession of a valid visa if you are neither a citizen of the USA or Canada. US Customs will deny entry to passengers without the necessary documentation or credentials. In which event, the passengers will be responsible for their own repatriation costs.

LOWEST FARE GUARANTEE
We guarantee the lowest fare. If you can locate a lower fare within 12 hours of booking, we will offer a fare that is 10% less - provided the fare is non-stop, and available.
All trans-border fares and charges are in $US currency. For flights that are wholly within Canada, fares and charges are in $CA currency.
Fares are non-refundable. Should you be concerned that you may not be able to complete your journey as planned, we recommend that you purchase loss of fare insurance from a reputable source particularly if it is family travelling.

We operate air taxi planes with limited space, however we will do whatever is possible to boarding disabled passengers first. You must be ambulatory, with the ability to walk on and off the aircraft with minimal or no assistance. (Noted in the booking as a flag to indicate if you need assistance). Regrettably we are unable to carry service animals due to space limitations, however if the aircraft is not full we would endeavor to transport a service animal. It is implicit that this service cannot be guaranteed.
We accept animals (dogs or cats) if they are caged, weigh less than 15 lbs. and fit under the seat, or in the baggage hold. Animals, subject to size, not meeting these restrictions can be carried in the baggage hold provided they are crated and upon payment of a fare of $50. (Noted in the booking as a flag to indicate if you have a pet).
Baggage on smaller aircraft, due to smaller cargo holds, should wherever possible be soft sided to prevent damage, and to maximize available storage space. Limit 20 lbs. Excess baggage $2.00 per pound min $20.00 - if space is available. (Noted in the booking as a flag to indicate if you exceed).
Oversize sporting equipment; skis/board, golf clubs are only carried aboard charter flights on a space available basis plus an additional charge of $25.00 per piece in each direction - and may not be included in the standard baggage allowance. Small bags such as briefcases 8”X12” can be accommodated under the seats.
First come first served, no charge. All seats, but two, are window seats.
Flights are all planned non-stop. At times weather conditions can deteriorate to unsafe non- flyable conditions, requiring the delay or cancellation of the flight.

If a likely delay is known ahead of time, or in the event of a weather warning, do not go to the airport without checking our web site or calling 250- 800- 1381. We will make every effort to contact you if we have your phone number in the event of a flight change. We will also do everything in our power to reschedule, and accommodate our passengers.
