CALGARY, AB – March 19, 2019 /CNW/ - Today Swoop announced new service between Kelowna, BC and Las Vegas, NV. The twice weekly service from Kelowna International Airport (YLW) to McCarran International Airport (LAS) begins June 27, 2019 through October 26, 2019.
“Las Vegas and Swoop make the perfect combination for Kelowna travellers,” said Karen McIsaac, Senior Advisor of Communications for Swoop. “Our flights are non-stop and remarkably affordable, encouraging the freedom to fly more often while leaving more money to spend on the experience.”
“We are excited to announce a second destination with Swoop,” said Sam Samaddar, Airport Director for Kelowna International Airport. “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.”
“We are excited to welcome Swoop’s non-stop flights between Kelowna and Las Vegas,” said Chris Jones, Chief Marketing Officer for McCarran International Airport. “With this new route, Swoop is making it easier for more Canadians to visit the Entertainment Capital of the World.”
Swoop announced its arrival to Kelowna International Airport in January of this year when it introduced flights between Kelowna and Winnipeg three-times-a-week beginning May 24, 2019, as part of its summer schedule.
