KELOWNA - Non-stop flights by Swoop airlines between Kelowna and Winnipeg will run three days a week starting May 24.

Swoop is billed as an “ulta-low-cost-carrier" in a City of Kelowna news release.

“We are excited to welcome Swoop to YLW,” Kelowna Airport Director Sam Samaddar said in the release. “Having an ultra-low-cost-carrier in Kelowna is a great opportunity for the Okanagan as it provides more options for travellers.”

Flights are now available for purchase on Swoop’s website at FlySwoop.com.

“Kelowna is a natural choice as a new destination,” Steven Greenway, President of Swoop, said in the release. “The Okanagan Valley is a popular leisure market and the route between Kelowna and Winnipeg provides excellent value for those looking to explore Canada this summer.”
