Media Advisory - YQQ to Halt Operations in Remembrance of Those Who Serve

VANCOUVER, Nov. 9, 2011 /CNW/ - The Comox Valley Airport will halt terminal operations at 1100 hours on November 11, 2011 to observe two minutes of silence in honour of Remembrance Day and the men and women who serve our country.

When the clock strikes eleven, the Comox Valley Airport Commission will make an announcement to invite employees, volunteers, tenants and passengers to take part in the moment of silence.

"The Comox Valley Airport Commission and 19 Wing Comox share a special connection as partners in our pursuit to provide commercial air service to the citizens of the Comox Valley and Northern Vancouver Island," said YQQ CEO Shirley de Silva. "YQQ pauses for a moment of silence at this time each year to demonstrate our remembrance of those who have served, as well as our appreciation for those who continue to serve our country."

The Comox Valley Airport is also running special advertisements this week in local newspapers to pay tribute to Remembrance Day and the men and women of 19 Wing Comox.

The Comox Valley Airport was established by the Department of National Defence (DND) in 1942 and is the only military airport in British Columbia. The original air terminal building was constructed by the Royal Canadian Air Force in 1956. The Comox Valley Airport Commission (CVAC) was established in 1996 as a non-share capital and not-for-profit organization to operate the civil aviation facilities, including the terminal and apron at the Comox Valley Airport. The airfield and its associated systems are operated by the Canadian Air Force on a continuous 24-hour basis.
