Kelowna Airport Preparing For Emergency

Sat Oct 25, 2014 10:37 pm

Can anyone shed light to what is happening.

Kelowna Airport preparing for emergency

KELOWNA–Emergency crews have rushed to Kelowna Airport.

Fire crews, ambulance, police and airport crews are on standby for an unconfirmed emergency situation.


The trouble started with an outbound flight, according to Kelowna Airport spokesperson Jenelle Hynes. Luggage and passengers have both been removed from the plane so crews can do a second sweep of the aircraft.

We will report more details as they become available.

CTV News and your Global link both reporting it to be a WestJet flight that was targeted in the threat. More details with the news articles as they become available.

No LiveATC. Everything seems to be under control. Can definitely be a bit unnerving considering the seeming spike in threats in Canada lately (non-Aviation).

"At a news conference late Saturday, Kelowna RCMP said the threat was directed against the flight to Calgary"

I flew into Calgary Friday afternoon. If there have been threats, you'd never know it. The airport was laid back. I haven't even seen anything that looked like a Ford Victoria in two days here.
