August 2023 Wildfire Impacts
The majority of Transport Canada’s airspace restrictions at Kelowna International Airport (YLW) have now been removed. While some restrictions remain to support operations of aerial firefighting taking place, there are minimal impacts to arriving and departing flights.
Passengers are asked to continue to check with their airlines for the most up-to-date information before coming to the airport.
As we are restarting operations, hours for shops and restaurants may be limited. We thank passengers for their continued patience.
Additional parking fees will be waived for those who have had to leave their vehicle in the short- or long- term parking lots for longer than planned due to flight cancellations.
We thank all the emergency personnel who are continuing to work 24/7. We also thank our passengers for your continued patience and support of the firefighting activities required to protect our community.
As new information becomes available, updates will continue to be made on this page.
