Before United Airlines actually starts flying into Kelowna International Airport (YLW) an additional flight has been added.

Bolstered by higher than expected early bookings on the new daily Los Angeles (LAX) flight scheduled to begin Dec. 19, United Airlines is now adding a second seasonal Saturday flight to operate Jan. 5 to April 6, 2013.

"The inbound ski industry as well as outbound holiday travelers, will see this as very good news," says Jenelle Hynes, YLW marketing and media relations. "This additional Saturday flight has been specifically timed to link YLW to Sydney and Melbourne, Australia and Auckland, New Zealand."

Daily service on United Airlines Express between LAX and YLW  was announced on July 10, 2012.
