You will soon be able to fly directly to Las Vegas from Kelowna once again.

Swoop, which is WestJet’s ultra-low-cost carrier, will start offering direct flights from Kelowna International Airport to McCarran International Airport on June 27. The twice-weekly flights, which will take place on Thursdays and Sundays, will continue until Oct. 26.

“Las Vegas and Swoop make the perfect combination for Kelowna travellers,” Swoop’s senior communications advisor Karen McIsaac said in a press release. “Our flights are non-stop and remarkably affordable, encouraging the freedom to fly more often while leaving more money to spend on the experience.”

Swoop will begin flying out of YLW in May when it starts flying to Winnipeg three times a week.

“We are excited to announce a second destination with Swoop,” YLW airport director Sam Samaddar said. “We’ve heard from the community that they want more non-stop destinations from Kelowna. We’re pleased to have Swoop offer non-stop service to Las Vegas, which is the Okanagan’s single largest U.S. market for travel.”
