Booking Fees

Pacific Coastal Airlines has three types of booking fares. They are classified into three kinds with specifics that will suit passenger’s needs: Bravo, Classic, and Encore. Infants (babies up to the age of 2) can travel for free if held on the lap by an adult. There's also an option to pay for a seat, but the parents or guardian should make sure that the infant is comfortable and secure. Unaccompanied Minors or children (ages 5-11) can travel on their own as long as certain conditions are met. Calling the Reservations Centre or communicating with your travel agent about this is required. Compassionate Travel is for passengers who need to immediately purchase a ticket without filling a form. This is relevant if there is a death in the immediate family. Medical Fares apply to passengers who need a companion while travelling. You need to provide a Travel Assistance Program (TAP) from your doctor or a dated letter with a letterhead, if the first requirement is not available. For any concerns, passengers will need to get in touch with the airline to clarify whether you can board the plane. Group and convention fares are also permitted.
