Kelowna International Airport is the recipient of the B.C. Aviation Council’s 2015 William Templeton Award.

The award is presented annually for outstanding initiative and achievement in the continuous and successful development of a community airport in B.C.

“This is a tremendous achievement for the YLW campus,” said airport director, Sam Samaddar.

“We’ve certainly developed an airport that the community can be truly proud of, and really it’s because of our hard-working staff and the innovation that we’ve used to develop this world-class facility.”
