KELOWNA - YLW will be able to boast daily service year-round between Kelowna and Toronto Pearson International Airport starting in June through Air Canada rouge.
The service was introduced in 2002 as a seasonal option according to a media release.
"We are pleased to be one of the first new domestic routes for the Air Canada rouge service," YLW Airport Director Sam Samaddar says. "Air Canada rouge provides more capacity, therefore more people travelling to the Okanagan, and more convenience for customers in the Okanagan with just one stop to virtually anywhere in Air Canada’s world through its global Toronto hub.”
Tourism Kelowna CEO Nancy Cameron says the new service will be great for the Okanagan as part of the effort to entice Ontarians to Kelowna and surrounding area.
"Having Air Canada rouge provide this new daily service dramatically improves our accessibility to this important market just in time for our peak season,” Cameron says.
Air Canada rouge will operate flights using a 136-seat Airbus A319 aircraft offering both premium and economy cabins of service. Go to aircanada.com for flight booking information and to ylw.kelowna.ca for more airport information, flights and services.
