Fly like a celebrity from Kelowna on an Air Canada Airbus this winter

Air Canada is offering premium non-stop flights between Toronto and Kelowna this winter on planes normally used for professional sports teams and pop stars. The Airbus A319 Jetz aircraft carry only 58 passengers, which is less than half of what that plane normally carries, according to an Air Canada news release.

Air Canada is offering premium non-stop flights between Toronto and Kelowna this winter on planes normally used for professional sports teams and pop stars.

The Airbus A319 Jetz aircraft carry only 58 passengers, which is less than half of what that plane normally carries, according to an Air Canada news release.

Because they’re not being used for their regular purposes they’re being offered for Christmas and spring break travel. Flights can be booked starting today, Oct. 21, between Kelowna and Toronto for travel between Dec. 12 and Jan. 6.

A second schedule for spring break is still being worked out. Details can be found on aircanada.com/acjetz here.

Along with business class seating, travellers will be treated to upgraded meal service, free drinks, access to lounges in the airport and shorter boarding times.

Fares will be the same as regular business class flights.

Along with the Kelowna-Toronto direct flights, the Jetz will be used on flights from Vancouver to Phoenix, Palm Springs and Puerto Vallarta plus other routes from Montreal and Toronto.

Air Canada is also working on plans to use the jets for vacation flights to luxury hotels and resorts. Details on those plans will be posted on aircanadavacations.com shortly, Air Canada said.
