Kelowna International Airport
Kelowna International Airport

The Okanagan contains five airports, four helipads and three water aerodromes. The Okanagan is a region located in the British Columbia Interior of Canada. Of the five cities based in the Okanagan, three of them contain aviation services. Vernon contains two: the Vernon Regional Airport and Vernon/Wildlife Water Aerodrome, while Kelowna provides the same number: the Kelowna International Airport and Kelowna (General Hospital) Heliport. The Penticton Regional Airport and Penticton Water Aerodrome are situated in Penticton, making a total of two aviation services offered in the city. There are also communities that are not cities in the Okanagan, many of which also maintain aviation services. Two of the airports in the Okanagan provide public commercial flights to other destinations: the Kelowna International Airport which is part of the National Airports System and Penticton Regional Airport. A number of other airports in the Okanagan are generally used for personal events, or skydiving, although some have no facilities. (Full list...)
