Kelowna Worldwide Airport bracing for surge of vacationers
With restrictions against Canada-wide recreational travel set to lift as early as July 1, Kelowna International Airport (YLW) is now preparing for a surge of travelers.
After being mostly shut down for over a year, several procedures have been set up by YLW to better prepare for the re-opening.
“We have had some plans for some time on how we start to gear up, but it is not a quick process,” said Sam Samaddar, airport director.
“You just can’t restart the whole system after it being shut down for well over a year now. There is some careful planning that has taken place, but there are going to be some constraints.”
