Low-cost airline Swoop will soon begin service from Kelowna

Another low-cost airline will soon enter the airways of Kelowna International Airport (YLW).

Swoop began its initial service last summer with flights out of Abbotsford and will now expand to Kelowna.

Starting on May 24, 2019, Swoop will provide non-stop service from YLW to Winnipeg Richardson International Airport (YWG) three times per week.

“Kelowna is a natural choice as a new destination,” said Steven Greenway, President of Swoop.

“The Okanagan Valley is a popular leisure market and the route between Kelowna and Winnipeg provides excellent value for those looking to explore Canada this summer.”

According to YLW, passenger demand has doubled since the non-stop route to Winnipeg was first launched in 2017.

In 2018, YLW passengers totaled a record-breaking 2,080,372, marking a 31% increase or more than 486,700 passengers during the last three years.

YLW is also one of Canada’s fastest growing airports for domestic travel.
