YLW's busiest day

Heads up if you're flying out of YLW this holiday season. Today is the busiest travel day of the year at Kelowna International Airport.

Airport manager Sam Samaddar says volume is high because people want to spend the holidays with loved ones.

"We expect the peak to be Friday, and then we're expecting another peak on the 26th and 27th," he said.

Samaddar says holiday slowdowns are a combination of planes being at or close to 100 per cent full. Many of the people travelling during the holidays don't travel all the time and will likely be carrying extra packages and presents, which slows the check-in process.

Samaddar also reminds travellers not to wrap presents ahead of time, in case they need to be opened at check-in.

The good news is, right now, the weather forecast looks pretty good.

"The models we've looked at look pretty good. We don't expect weather over the current forecast to be an issue," said Samaddar.
