KELOWNA - New non-stop flights between Kelowna and Winnipeg will begin later this summer.
WestJet has announced new flights between the two cities beginning July 28. The route will include flights three times weekly, both to and from Kelowna, through Sept. 6.
The company says they will be offering low fares for the new routes.
"These routes have been on our radar for a while now and with the busy summer flying season upon us, we examined our fleet plans to see if there was extra flying we could provide. Our guests can expect WestJet's low fares on these routes,” WestJet Executive Vice-President of Commercial Bob Cummings says in a release.
The airline company also announced new flights between Hamilton and Edmonton and enhanced routes between Vancouver and Winnipeg as well as Vancouver and Edmonton for the summer, which may help with connecting flights for travellers out of the Okanagan.
Currently travellers using the Kelowna Airport can take direct flights to Vancouver, Victoria, Calgary, Toronto, Edmonton, Prince George, Cranbrook and Whitehorse, as well as several international destinations.
