As of spring 2018, travelling from Toronto to Kamloops will be more convenient thanks to the launch of nonstop service by Air Canada Rouge. This new service connects Kamloops to three of Air Canada’s Canadian hubs: Vancouver, Calgary and Toronto.
“We are thrilled that Air Canada Rouge is launching new nonstop service to Toronto Pearson,” said the Managing Director of Kamloops Airport Heather McCarley, in a December press release. “This is an important connection for Kamloops. Thanks to Air Canada’s global network, it opens up our region to travellers coming from all corners of Canada and around the world with one ticket and one stop.”
"…Ontario currently represents the fourth largest market for summer tourism in Sun Peaks. With the ease of a nonstop flight, visitors can leave Toronto and be in Sun Peaks in time to enjoy an afternoon in the mountains taking part in one of our many summer activities,” said Arlene Schieven, President and CEO, Tourism Sun Peaks.
The flights will run from June 2018 through October 2018, and conveniently connect with both the domestic and international schedule for Air Canada’s flights.
As vacationers begin to make their summer plans, we at Sun Peaks have been hard at work firming up our busy summer event lineup. From the popular return of 5K Foam Fest to the recent announcement of Canadian-rockers Big Sugar as the headliners of our free Canada Day concert, our event calendar is filling up to coincide with the June to October time period.
