Second White Spot restaurant planned for YLW

Existing lounge in the Kelowna airport terminal to be turned into another White Spot restaurant.

Visitors to the Kelowna International airport will soon be able to hit the spot before and after passing through the security gate.

Skyway Ventures, in partnership with the airport, are converting the exisiting Skyway Atrium Lounge in the terminal to a White Spot restaurant.

“Friends and families dropping off passengers, area residents and passengers themselves are looking for more food options at the airport,” say airport director Sam Samaddar. “We are pleased we will soon be able to offer more services before heading through security with the additional full service White Spot Restaurant.”

Renovations on the new restaurant started last Monday, with a planned opening date of June 1. During construction, the lounge will be closed. But food and beverage services will continue to be available at Tim Hortons, located across from the Air Canada check-in desks, and at existing White Spot Restaurant and the Skyway Caf and Wine Bar, located after security in the departures area.

Once the conversion is completed, food services at YLW before security clearance will include Tim Hortons (open from 4:30 a.m. to 10 p.m.) and a full-service White Spot Restaurant complete with take-out service ( open from 5 a.m. to 8 p.m., effective June 1).

In the departures area after security, White Spot and the Skyway Caf and Wine Bar are both open between 5 a.m. and 8 p.m.
