WestJet announced Monday more flights between Kelowna and Edmonton, Calgary and Toronto.

The additional service will be available by November and is part of the airline’s schedule for the winter of 2017-18 and represents a significant increase in flights from Kelowna International Airport.

“This increased service will greatly enhance connectivity options for our travellers. With just one stop through one of these global hubs, passengers can easily explore a number of world-wide destinations,” said Sam Samaddar, Airport Director, Kelowna International Airport, in a press release.

“WestJet is committed to offering Okanagan residents great value and service, and we’re very proud to have them as a partner, helping us serve the travel needs of our community, for the last 21 years.”

Details of WestJet’s increased service from Kelowna this winter:

  • Kelowna-Edmonton, from four to six times daily (continued from summer 2017), more than any other carrier.
  • Kelowna-Calgary, from 44 to 47 times weekly (seven times each business day), more than any other carrier.
  • Kelowna-Toronto, from five to seven times weekly.

WestJet also announced the addition of dozens of new flights across Canada. The additional flights deliver optimized service for both the business and leisure traveller and give Canadians greater connectivity into and out of WestJet hubs in Vancouver, Calgary and Toronto, providing more flight frequency between key routes, better scheduling and greater access from smaller airports into the wider WestJet network.

“Growing in Kelowna is typical of the kind of difference we want to make for travellers across British Columbia,” said Brian Znotins, WestJet Vice-President, Network Planning, Alliances and Corporate Development, in a press release.
