Red Deer’s aerial connection to Kelowna, B.C. will grow a little stronger next month.

Northwestern Air Lease Ltd. announced on Thursday that it will add Monday flights between the Red Deer and Kelowna airports, beginning Aug. 5.

The Fort Smith, N.W.T. airline currently offers scheduled passenger service between the two cities on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Thursdays, Fridays and Sundays.

Red Deer passengers can continue on to Abbotsford, B.C. on Tuesdays, Thursdays, Fridays and Sundays.

“We’ve seen strong demand for Kelowna,” said Tomas Chlumecky, Northwestern’s general manager.

“Seats on our five-day-per-week existing schedule were starting to become limited, so we are pleased to add another day and continue to serve the region with another flight to Kelowna.”

The new Monday flights will leave the Red Deer Airport at 12:30 p.m. and return at 3:45 p.m.

In addition to the B.C. destinations, Northwestern flies directly from Red Deer to Fort McMurray on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays.

Earlier this month, Air Canada announced that it will offer three flights daily from the Red Deer Airport to the Calgary International Airport, commencing Sept. 3. Air Georgian will provide this service under the Air Canada Express brand.
