After planning their own big day and attending friends’ weddings in the area, Kayla and Tylor English recognized there was a serious shortage of event spaces in the Fraser Valley. So, the couple left their 9-to-5 jobs to open a venue that would be one of a kind and yet completely practical.
Based at the vibrant Abbotsford International Airport, Airside Event Spaces offers the chance for couples, corporations and friends to meet and celebrate milestones in a private airport hangar flanked by breathtaking Mount Baker.
Airside to the Abbotsford International Airport the event space offers in-house catering and on-site logistics planning. Airside even provides two planes for unique backdrops for your event photos. Arrange to fly in for corporate events or as a unique addition to weddings, parties and photo shoots. Ask us for more information about our charter services on our new 8-seat turboprop.
Beyond the extraordinary setting, Airside promises an unforgettable experience by setting the bar high in every way: service, amenities and catering. Airside also ensures a smooth and seamless event by acting as a central hub that houses everything in one place.
Husband and wife team Kayla & Tylor are the faces you’ll see when you come for a tour or need assistance during your event. Both thrive on the chance to go the extra mile for clients and collaborate with the exceptional talent of Metro Vancouver’s wedding and event professionals.
When they’re not at Airside, they’re busy keeping their toddler happy and awaiting the birth of their second child. You’ll also find them hunting for the next great restaurant, entertaining at home or taking little trips in the Cessna 172.
