Pacific Coastal Airlines announced the addition of a new mid-day flight between Victoria and Kelowna effective Monday, June 5.

The new flight leaves Victoria International Airport (YYJ) at 11:45 a.m. arriving at Kelowna International Airport (YLW) at 12:50 p.m.

The same aircraft leaves Kelowna at 1:10 p.m. arriving at the Canadian Rockies International Airport (YXC) in Cranbrook at 3:05 p.m. MDT.

The plane then leaves Cranbrook at 3:30 MDT arriving in Kelowna at 3:25 p.m. PDT, leaving Kelowna at 3:45 and arriving back in Victoria at 4:50.

“This new schedule provides more options for customers traveling between Victoria and Kelowna, as well as one-stop same plane service between Cranbrook and Victoria via Kelowna,” said Pacific Coastal’s director of business development Kevin Boothroyd.

The addition of this new mid-day service means that there are now three non-stop flights between Victoria and Kelowna Monday through Friday, and two non-stop flights between the two destinations on Sundays.

“These changes are part of our ongoing commitment to provide the public with quick, convenient, and affordable transportation choices. We are proud to support local communities in British Columbia,” said Boothroyd.
