Taking off for Red Deer

There will be no more trips to the Vancouver Airport just to get a flight to Red Deer for Kelowna residents.

Kelowna's International Airport has announced Northwestern Air Lease Ltd. will begin non-stop service twice a week between Kelowna and Red Deer.

Airport Director Sam Samaddar says there are many business connections between the two regions.

"We also have many visiting family and friends who will benefit from this direct link."

Gordon Bush, General Manager, Northwestern Air says Providing air service between the Okanagan and Central Alberta makes great business sense for the growth of the airline.

"As demand grows we hope to add more frequency to the schedule to further serve the two regions."

Northwestern Air will fly a Jetstream 32, 19-seat passenger pressurized turbo-prop aircraft Fridays and Sundays between YLW and YQF:
