RICHMOND, British Columbia, April 26, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Pacific Coastal Airlines is pleased to announce the addition of a new mid-day flight between Victoria and Kelowna effective Monday, June 5, 2017.

The new flight leaves Victoria International Airport (YYJ) at 11:45 A.M. arriving at Kelowna International Airport (YLW) at 12:50 P.M. PDT.

The same aircraft leaves Kelowna at 1:10 P.M. arriving at the Canadian Rockies International Airport (YXC) in Cranbrook at 3:05 P.M. MDT.

The plane then leaves Cranbrook at 3:30 MDT arriving in Kelowna at 3:25 PM PDT, leaving Kelowna at 3:45 and arriving back in Victoria at 4:50 P.M.

“This new schedule provides more options for customers traveling between Victoria and Kelowna,” says Pacific Coastal’s Director of Business Development Kevin Boothroyd, “as well as one-stop same plane service between Cranbrook and Victoria via Kelowna,” he adds.
