Greetings from Vernon ...
The only air-service Vernon (YVK) has is Northrernhawk Air with services from Calgary (just starting) on Mondays and Fridays and to Trail. Vancouver service is not available at the moment. Aircraft type is a Beech King Air 100.
The Vernon airport is more of a gerneral aviation airport, the runway is only 3360ft by 75ft. They want to extend it to 4000ft, but everyone is griping about that.
is only a 30 minute drive south and has lots of flights with WestJet, Air Canada Jazz, Regional 1 and Horizon. Points served are YYZ
, among other smaller airports. As mentioned above, Kelowna is home to Kelowna Flight Craft, so lots of CV
-580's, various 727's and they also were just awarded a contract for 757's.
