Harbour Air Seaplanes, now the world’s largest all-seaplane airline, began operations in 1982 as Windoak Air Service to provide seaplane charter services for the forestry industry in British Columbia. In 1993, Harbour Air purchased Trans-Provincial Airlines, added charter flights to resorts, and increased its scheduled services. The airline set up a small subsidiary, Harbour Air Malta in June 2007 and operates a DHC-3 Turbo Otter floatplane out of Valletta, Malta for scheduled flights to Gozo and sightseeing trips around the islands.
Harbour Air was North America’s first carbon neutral airline. The airline operates from its Victoria Harbour Airport, a modern floating seaplane facility. The terminal is accessible from Wharf Street on the Inner Harbour’s east. The airline currently flies DeHavilland Turbine Single Otter, DeHavilland Turbine Twin Otter, and DeHavilland Beaver seaplanes on regularly scheduled flights connecting nine British Columbia destinations as well as operating tour and charter services. Recognized as a top BC employer, one of Canada’s Best Managed companies for 7 years in a row, and recently the 2015 VISA Canada Traveller Experience of the Year. Harbour Air is a leader in the aviation industry, a vital component to British Columbia’s transportation infrastructure, and a significant business operating out of Victoria’s Inner Harbour.
