Pacific Coastal Airways flights between Kelowna and Cranbrook to return this fall
A direct flight between Kelowna and Cranbrook will be returning later this year.
Pacific Coastal Airlines (PCA) announced today that its direct service between Kelowna International Airport (YLW) and Cranbrook Rockies International Airport (YXC) will resume Sept. 12.
“Pacific Coastal Airlines is excited to resume service between Cranbrook and Kelowna,” said Jonathan Richardson, vice president of customer and commercial services with PCA.
“We have received significant customer feedback requesting the return of this 55-minute non-stop flight.”
Once service resumes in September, flights will happen every Monday, Wednesday and Friday.
They will leave YLW at 10:50 am and arrive at YXC at 10:45 am, thanks to the time difference.
The planes will then turn around and depart Cranbrook at 11:50 am, arriving back in Kelowna at 1:45 pm.
“We are so pleased to see this route with Pacific Coastal return between Kelowna and Cranbrook,” noted Sam Samaddar, airport director at YLW.
“It is important that we are able to once again provide these regional connections for BC residents.”
The non-stop flight will be made on the 19-passenger pressurized turboprop Beech 1900.
