KELOWNA – Air Canada will be adding a second daily flight between Kelowna to Toronto this summer.

The airline made the announcement last week saying the first flight will depart Toronto’s Pearson International Airport daily at 8:25 p.m. local time and arrive in Kelowna at 10 p.m., according to a City of Kelowna media release.

The A319 aircraft will then return to Toronto at 10:55 p.m. and arrive in Toronto at 6:10 a.m. local time.

YLW Airport Director Sam Samaddar says the extra flights will start June 22, 2018, just in time for their peak season.
