Travel tips:

  • Most travelers need a visitor visa or an eTA to travel to, or transit through, Canada. Before you apply, find out what you need here.
  • Allow at least 2 hours connection to clear customs and immigration, and to connect to your domestic flights to Kelowna.
  • If you are transiting via Los Angeles give yourself extra time for connections to transfer from one terminal to another.
  • If you are transiting through Vancouver, and have time on your hands, and/or children that need to be kept distracted, we recommend you enjoy the ambience and welcoming hospitality of the Fairmont Vancouver Airport Hotel which is conveniently located within the terminal, overlooking the runways.
