“We’re excited to welcome a new airline to the community,” said Sam Samaddar, airport director. “Adding another ultra-low-cost-carrier to YLW will give residents more flight options, and visitors more opportunities to experience all that the Okanagan has to offer.”

Canada Jetlines intends to provide ultra-low fare service out of Kelowna, subject to the completion of the airline licensing process and the receipt of applicable regulatory approvals.

“Jetlines is thrilled to announce future ultra low-fare service to the Kelowna International Airport,” said Javier Suarez, Jetlines CEO. “The Okanagan region represents a very significant leisure market for Canadians and we look forward to helping more people get to visit the Country’s only desert. We firmly believe that our fares should stimulate more tourism and travel in the region.”
