More flights from Kelowna to Toronto, Winnipeg, Regina and Saskatoon this summer

WestJet's new-and-improved 2024 summer schedule includes reintroduced flights between Kelowna and Winnipeg, Regina and Saskatoon and daily service to Toronto.

"Our 2024 summer schedule continues to deliver on our commitment to make critical investments across Canada, providing more affordable options for Canadians and international visitors to connect with the people and places that matter most," said WestJet executive vice-president John Weatherill.

Kelowna has one of those "matter the most" airports.

Kelowna was one of WestJet's first six destinations when the airline launched in 1996 with just three planes, along with Vancouver, Victoria, Calgary, Edmonton and Winnipeg.

Over the past 28 years, WestJet has grown into a global powerhouse with 185 planes flying in and out of 109 destinations in 24 countries.

The airline expands that reach with its just-released summer 2024 schedule, which includes some love for Kelowna.
