Normal operations resume at Kelowna airport
The private Cessna Citation aircraft that was blocking the north end of the runway at Kelowna International Airport (YLW) has been removed.
The runway was cleared of debris and after a follow-up safety inspection airport operations were approved to resume at 12:30 pm.
Twelve commercial flights (six inbound and six outbound) were affected with this limited runway access between 10:21 a.m. and 12:30 pm.
Flights bound for YLW which couldn't land because of the closed runway were being diverted to alternate airports until the runway was cleared.
