WestJet has announced a new service between Kelowna and Las Vegas, reintroducing a transborder connection from the Okanagan, for the first time since 2020.
Beginning Dec. 15, WestJet will operate non-stop service between Kelowna and Las Vegas, twice weekly, as the airline continues to strengthen its investments in Western Canada through increased sun and leisure connections.
"WestJet is proud to add yet another transborder connection to our winter schedule, between Kelowna and Las Vegas, as we continue to provide guests across Canada with even more affordable and accessible opportunities to escape the cold and find the sun this winter," said John Weatherill, WestJet Executive vice-president and chief commercial officer.
