WestJet’s new red-eye to Toronto

The second daily flight will depart YLW at 12:05 a.m. and arrive in Toronto at 7:15 a.m

WestJet has announced it will begin red-eye service from Kelowna International Airport (YLW) to Toronto Pearson International Airport (YYZ) effective May 18.

“YLW is very happy to announce this added service to Toronto as it increases connectivity options for our travellers,” said Sam Samaddar, airport director. “With just one stop in Toronto, our passengers can travel to a number of world-wide destinations.”

WestJet currently offers year-round, non-stop service between Kelowna and Toronto. The second daily flight will depart YLW at 12:05 a.m. and arrive in Toronto at 7:15 a.m., just in time to catch one of more than 180 WestJet-operated and airline partner flights to destinations around the globe, including over 55 daily destinations throughout eastern Canada, the United States and Europe.

“The addition of a second daily flight between Kelowna and Toronto demonstrates our commitment to offer Canadians more choices and more connectivity for their travel dollar,” said Lee Lipton, WestJet director, network and schedule planning. “We thank our Okanagan Valley guests for their loyalty and support over the past 21 years and look forward to welcoming them on board this new service this summer.”
