Air service at Kelowna airport is expanding as Northwestern Air Lease Ltd. offers passenger flights five days a week between YLW to Abbotsford and Red Deer.
Last April, Northwestern Air began twice a week service between Red Deer and YLW.
"It was always our plan to increase our flights to YLW," says Northwestern Air president Terry Harrold. "We've built a strong business case and it is nice to see the passenger demand for this air service."
YLW served 1.44 million people in 2012. They now offer 66 daily non-stop commercial flights with Air Canada, Central Mountain Air, Alaska Airlines, West Jet, and Northwestern Air. They also offer United Airlines flights to Vancouver, Prince George, Abbotsford, Victoria, Edmonton, Calgary, Red Deer, Toronto, Seattle and Los Angeles; also season service to Las Vegas, Los Cabos, Pheonix, Los Angeles, Puerto Vallarta and Cancun. Charter services to sun destinations include Transat Holidays, and Sunwing to Cancun, Peurto Vallarta and Los Cabos.
Flight bookings can be made online beginning Feb. 1.
