Air Canada Rouge 767-300ER will fly daily to and from Toronto

Big Boeing coming to YLW

The largest aircraft to ever operate out of Kelowna International Airport is coming this summer.

Air Canada will use a Boeing 767-300ER for its daily, non-stop flights between Kelowna and Toronto between July 1 and Sept. 7. The plane has 282 seats, including 258 in economy class and 24 premium Rouge seats. It is the largest plane in Air Canada’s Rouge fleet.

“We’re proud to welcome the Boeing 767 aircraft to YLW, as it means additional capacity to Toronto, the United States and more opportunities to connect to destinations across the globe,” YLW airport director Sam Samaddar said in a press release. “This additional capacity to Toronto is one example of how we are working to accommodate larger aircraft at YLW and provide residents with more non-stop flights.”

WestJet will also have a daily, non-stop flight between Kelowna and Toronto this summer.

YLW’s runway, at 8,900 feet, is long enough to accommodate up to category V aircraft, which includes the Boeing 737, 767 and 787, and the Airbus A319, 320 and 321.
