Kelowna International Airport will be a busy place during the Christmas holidays.

Large crowds expected at airport over the holidays

YLW anticipates increased, but steady traffic flow until Jan. 4, with more than 100,000 passengers

With nearly 7,000 passengers each day, this holiday travel season promises to be an active one at the Kelowna International Airport.

YLW anticipates increased, but steady traffic flow until Jan. 4, with more than 100,000 passengers expected through the doors. The busiest travel days of the season will be Sunday, Thursday and Dec. 27.

“Although there are more than 2,600 stalls available, parking at YLW is expected to reach full capacity during this peak period,” said Jasmine Patrick, communications advisor.

“Those needing to park at YLW should follow signage and parking lot staff directions. People travelling during this period should also consider alternative transportation to the airport, such as taxi and limousine services, airport shuttle services, public transit or having a friend drop them off.”

The terminal building opens at 3:30 a.m. with check-in counters, pre-board screening and food services available at 4 a.m.

“Passengers are reminded to arrive at the airport in plenty of time,” said Patrick.

“It is recommended to check in and drop off your baggage for domestic flights at least 90 minutes before your boarding time and at least two hours prior for international flights.”
