KELOWNA - Travellers through Kelowna International Airport could experience some delays this month during upgrades to the airport’s instrument landing system.

Airport authorities are advising passengers that during system outages in the replacement process, poor weather conditions or low visibility could cause flight diversions or cancellations.

The work is expected to be complete by the end of September but communications advisor Jennifer Hewitt said in a press release that passengers flying during that time should double check their flight's status before leaving home.

Hewitt said other navigation aids will remain operational during this time to “maximize access to the airport”.

The city-owned Kelowna International Airport served 1.89 million passengers last year and is the eleventh-busiest airport in Canada.
