Northwesern Air expands flight service to Abbotsford, Red Deer

Northwestern Air expands its YLW reach

Northwestern Air Lease Ltd. is about to become a more familiar face at Kelowna International Airport (YLW).

Starting March 3, Northwestern Air will offer service five days a week between YLW to Abbotsford and Red Deer.

This is great news for our passengers,” said YLW airport director Sam Samaddar. “The more we can expand our inter-provincial reach the better. We have seen strong passenger loads on Northwestern Air and are pleased they have confidence in the market to increase their service to Red Deer and expand into Abbotsford.”

Last April, Northwestern Air began twice-a-week service between Red Deer and YLW.

“When we started service last year, it was always our plan to increase our flights to YLW,” said Northwestern Air president Terry Harrold. “We’ve built a strong business case and it is nice to see the passenger demand for this air service, adding Abbotsford just made sense”.

Flight bookings can now be made online at www.nwal.ca.
