Kelowna Airport open house features all it has to offer

Lots of sun destinations

The Kelowna International Airport opened its doors to more than travellers Saturday during an open house event.

Sam Samaddar, airport manager, said the open house was a way to show people all the airport had to offer as well as some of the surrounding amenities.

“It's really celebrating the air service we have out of the airport,” said Samaddar, adding the airport has numerous sun destinations including Las Vegas.

Numerous airlines fly out of the airport, which is one of the busiest in Western Canada.

“We've had tremendous growth over the past five years,” said Samaddar, however, with the grounding of the Max airliner numbers are down in recent months.

But that is not expected to last and the airport is preparing for future growth.

“We will have the 737 Max come back into service, hopefully in the second quarter next year and we are looking forward to the opportunity to rebuild some of that capacity,” he said.

Samaddar said a “major expansion plan” for the main building is planned to start next year.
