Sea planes will soon be flying between downtown Vancouver and the Kelowna Eldorado Resort marina on Okanagan Lake.

Starting July 23, Harbour Air will provide weekly round trip flights between Vancouver and the Eldorado. Flights increase to twice a week for the last part of July and August.

“Getting people directly to the heart of where they want to be on the coast is what we are known for” said Harbour Air’s CEO, Greg McDougall. “Now, with working with the beautiful Eldorado Resort, we finally have an opportunity to offer that same service into a beautiful property on Okanagan Lake and we couldn’t be more excited.”

Harbour Air and the Eldorado have partnered to create special hotel and accommodation packages for passengers.

“The Eldorado Resort is delighted to be working in partnership with Harbour Air who, as many people may know, is the largest all-seaplane airline in the world. Harbour Air customers have come to expect the very best in terms of service excellence and safety, and so for the Eldorado Resort, working with Harbour Air was a natural fit for us,” said Eldorado Resort general manager Mark Jeanes.

“This new air service also creates another seamless option for guests from the Lower Mainland wanting to come and explore the Okanagan, with the flight time being just over an hour from city centre to city centre.”

The route will fly until September 6, 2021
