Fixing YLW parking, crowds

Kelowna international airport broke passenger records for the second year in a row in 2017, as close to 1.9 million people passed through its doors.

However, as YLW’s rapid growth continues it’s facing ever-more-pressing challenges with congestion, parking, and space for arriving airplanes.

Airport staff addressed those challenges, and their solutions, today when it presented city council with its latest planning document.

To tackle issues related to overcrowding, the plan lays out an expansion to the airport terminal. Taking place over several phases, the buildout will eventually add three new baggage claim areas, more concession space, more space for pre-boarding screening, and a separate throughway for arriving international passengers.

For more on the expansion, as well as why parking is becoming an increasing issue at YLW, check out the full story on Castanet's sister business news website, Okanagan Edge.
