Tourism

Pitt Meadows Airport is centrally located in Pitt Meadows, north of the Fraser River, serving the Lower Mainland and Fraser Valley regions.

It is 2.5 km east of the junction of the Pitt and Fraser Rivers, and only a 45-minute drive to downtown Vancouver, and 40 minutes to Abbotsford and the Fraser valley.

With a breathtaking view of the Golden Ears mountains to the North, and bordered by the Fraser River to the South, Pitt Meadows Regional Airport occupies a spacious 646 acre site comprised of three runways and float plane launch and dock, agricultural lands, aviation hangar sites, and commercial development areas.

Families love the proximity to Pitt Lake, for water sports, boating, fishing, camping and hiking. For a weekend getaway, an island in the lake has many cabins that are available for rental. One example is: Pitt Lake Wilderness

We are just hours away from the wine region of Canada, the Okanagan Valley in BC. Many wineries offer tours and events – visit city websites to be flooded with links, activities and information. Canada’s only desert and the northern most tip of the Sonora desert is also in the Okanagan – have a look at the Osoyoos website! Many towns have small airports, larger airports are in Kelowna, Kamloops and Penticton. Fly over and enjoy the scenery from above!

We are easily connected to Seattle, Whistler, and Vancouver Island, and from here you can fly stunning routes over the Pacific Ring of Fire, the Rocky Mountains and beyond… From here you can charter a helicopter flight to Whistler, or fly to Victoria, Nanaimo and Sechelt. Book a sightseeing flight, or go skydiving. From here you can catch that game south of the border with your friends. Or just sit on the patio of the Runway Café, relax and enjoy the view of the mountains and planes. Experience the thrill of flight!
