tjv doesn't have 'outside of working hours' :P. You and I do, but my time outside of working hours is still valuable, even if I'm not getting paid.

A road improvement project has also begun today and work will last through the end of August.
Travellers pass through the departure terminal at Victoria International Airport, where a nearly $20 million expansion will double the square footage of terminal space for departing passengers. The airport is on-track to welcome a record volume of travellers in 2018.
Another record year expected for Victoria International as $20 million terminal expansion takes off

Holy smokes, for folks who can remember the little shack that was the terminal 45 years ago, this latest expansion really puts the exclamation mark on just how much the airport has expanded ... AND just how much the entire region has expanded to require this kind of square footage in the terminal.


I was out there on the weekend, and it looks like they've also got yet another massive long term parking lot expansion going on to the West of Electra Blvd.

Not sure that it was mentioned here...Sunwing is adding a third destination out of YYJ this winter. They will now fly to Huatulco in addition to Puerto Vallarta and Los Cabos.

Huatulco is an awesome destination.

I took Sunwing for the first time this year, and I must say, they were pretty good. It wasn't really much different than flying with a "regular" airline.

Yep, I've had good experiences with them as well. Pro tip, they often have some pretty dynamite prices on flights between Vancouver and Toronto. You wouldn't expect to see them on that domestic route being a sun destination airline, but they do it. If you need to get to Ontario on the cheap, they can sometimes come in clutch if you can get to or happen to be in Vancouver.

Isn't Huatulco a pretty small place? Seems like it would be hard to get the numbers. Can you book air only on Sunwing or do you have to stay at an all inclusive?

It's definitely more of an emerging destination, but is highly popular with Canadians versus Americans (i.e. Toronto and Calgary trail only Mexico City in terms of air passenger traffic...almost like a version of Cuba within Mexico). Sunwing flew YYJ to Huatulco two years ago and it was a decently used route. YYJ was actually the 4th largest Canadian route to Huatulco then, even larger than bigger airports like Vancouver, Edmonton, and Winnipeg.


You can book air only, but the price difference between that or adding 7 days at an all-inclusive is negligible.
