Seasonal Weather Delays

Dear Valued Client,

With winter upon us, please be advised that due to inclement weather conditions, route delays may be expected. Although Dye & Durham always utilizes every effort to get through weather related delays, please note that there may be unforeseen service interruptions. Flights between Vancouver and Victoria can be cancelled on short notice. Kamloops, Prince George and other areas of British Columbia are difficult to reach in severe weather conditions.

ETRAY™ is weatherproof! Dye & Durham’s online work order system, ETRAY™, is a convenient, weatherproof, cost-effective and efficient search & filing portal. Best of all, it is fully supported by our courteous professionals.
