United Airlines flying LA to Kelowna

Wed, 11/07/2012 - 3:57 pm

Many people consider Los Angeles the centre of the universe. Well, the centre of the universe is now just three hours from Kelowna International Airport and four hours from Silver Star Mountain Resort. The world is now closer than ever to our Okanagan champagne powder as United Airlines announced yesterday that they will commence daily round trip service from Los Angeles (LAX) to Kelowna (YLW) beginning December 19, 2012.  The 66 seat jet (6 business class seats, 20 economy plus seats and 40 economy seats) will leave LAX at 6:40pm and arrive in Kelowna at 9:44pm. It departs Kelowna daily at 8am arriving LAX at 10.51am.

We know this will be exciting news for skiers and snowboarders as Silver Star can now boast that they are one of the closest and most accessible ski resorts in Canada when serviced by this flight out of Los Angeles. This new service will not only link Los Angeles and United’s global network to Kelowna, but will also provide a conduit for travellers from Los Angeles and beyond to experience what Silver Star has to offer.
