Public Service Announcement 

On Wednesday, Dec. 28, 2022, the aviation fuel tank pump at Kelowna International Airport (YLW) had a mechanical failure. This failure is currently preventing the fuel trucks from being able to refill and service departing aircraft.   YLW and its partners are in the process of replacing the fuel tank pump. It is anticipated the pump replacement will be completed by 1 p.m. While this work takes place there may be some delayed and/or cancelled flights at YLW.   “We are working with our partners to fix this mechanical issue as quickly as possible,” says Sam Samaddar, Airport Director. “We thank passengers for their continued patience as we work to resolve this issue and get them on their way.”  Passengers are encouraged to check with their airline for the most up-to-date flight information before coming to the airport.
