Fast Air adds Abbotsford to North American operational bases
A presence at Abbotsford International airport will cater to the growing demands of the Vancouver lower mainland.
Fast Air now offers Vancouver services in addition to operations from Billy Bishop Toronto City and its headquarters at Winnipeg Richardson International.

Fast Air, headquartered at Winnipeg Richardson International airport in Canada, has expanded its private aviation services to Abbotsford International airport, catering to the growing demands of the Vancouver lower mainland. Fast Air is renowned for its extensive experience in operating turboprop and business jet aircraft, offering a diverse fleet for direct travel to destinations across North America.

Fast Air secured the location back in September 2020, offering aircraft owners an investment opportunity through fractional ownership. The company says that the facility is operated exclusively for aircraft management and charter clients, and that it plans to add an FBO in the future.

Expanded services at Fast Air Abbotsford include complete aircraft management, a private VIP lobby, 24/7 fuel service, Canadian Customs support, Jet A Fuel and AvGas and maintenance support.

The scenic lobby area offers picturesque views of Mount Baker, private meeting rooms and hangar space for various business jets. This facility not only provides a luxurious environment for private aviation but also aims to bolster regional businesses with an unparalleled level of service, potentially attracting new business interest to the region.

Dylan Fast, president and CEO, says: "Abbotsford is an ideal location for our new project as we continue to expand to serve clients and meet the growing demands of the region. We've been planning this project for several years, and it's exciting to see the site come to life. We've been extremely pleased with the fantastic reception, support and collaboration from Abbotsford International airport's leadership and the regional business community."

Fast Air will be hosting its Abbotsford grand opening event on Thursday, 9 May and is open to the public.
