VANCOUVER — Pacific Coastal Airlines (8P) has introduced electronic ticketing, allowing agents to seamlessly add Pacific Coastal flights to a multi-airline e-ticket, or issue a stand-alone 8P ticket, via Sabre, Apollo and Worldspan.
Canadian travel agents can purchase electronic tickets for travel on Pacific Coastal Airlines using cash, Visa, MasterCard or American Express.
There are three different fare categories to choose from: Bravo (classes Z, M, L), Classic (B, H, V) and Encore (Q, R, Y). Special fares, such as medical and compassionate travel fares, are also available but must be called in.
Pacific Coastal Airlines offers 7% commission to registered travel agents who book directly on pacificcoastal.com via the agent portal. Tickets purchased through GDSs, or reservations that are called into the airline’s call centre, are non-commissionable. Agents receive 5% commission for groups of 10 or more passengers as well as having access to discounted standby or confirmed travel for themselves.
Headquartered at Vancouver International Airport’s South Terminal, Pacific Coastal is the sixth largest airline operating at Vancouver International Airport (YVR) based on outbound seats, and third largest in takeoffs and landings. It offers daily regularly-scheduled service with connections to more than 65 destinations in the province, as far east as Cranbrook in the Rocky Mountains and as far north as Prince George or to Masset on the legendary island of Haida Gwaii. Its network encompasses major ski destinations, a multitude of fishing lodges, outdoor and wildlife adventure tours, and authentic First Nations experiences.
