North Okanagan residents will be able to soar to sunny destinations this winter.

Kelowna International Airport has announced its winter flight schedule, including non-stop service to Phoenix, Las Vegas and the Mexican cities of Mazatlan, Los Cabos, Puerto Vallarta and Cancun.

“We are really pleased to be offering two new destinations to Phoenix and Mazatlan while still maintaining our regular winter hot spots and increasing the number of available seats this winter season,” said Sam Samaddar, airport director.

“It’s also important to note that the final stop doesn’t have to be these destinations. Each of the airports we fly to is a great access point to so many other destinations.”

WestJet will be flying scheduled service from Kelowna to Phoenix beginning Oct. 31 until April 30 every Monday.

Beginning Nov. 1, WestJet will offer non-stop service twice a week on Tuesday and Saturday to Las Vegas. This will run until April 30.

WestJet is offering seasonal scheduled service once a week to each Cancun, Puerto Vallarta and Cabo San Lucas from Nov. 1 to April 30.


Starting Dec. 17, Transat Holidays/Nolitours begins weekly charters to Puerto Vallarta and Cancun. New this winter will be a Thursday weekly Sunwing charter to Mazatlan starting Nov. 10 and running through to mid-May.
