More air service to oil sands
Another air carrier is expected to use Kelowna International Airport as a base to shuttle workers between the Okanagan and the Alberta oil sands.
Calgary based Suncor Energy Services has applied to operate an air service on a scheduled seasonal basis between Vancouver, Kelowna and Edmonton.
The company would use the service to transport employees to and from the oil sands.
It says the service would be a means of expanding the available labour pool while allowing them to access skilled labour quickly.
Suncor would utilize a CRJ-900 86 seat aircraft for the service.
Kelowna City Council is expected to approve the request Monday.
