Vancouver, British Columbia – TheNewswire - September 2, 2021 - Cascadia Airways Inc.

“Our residents and visitors love the convenience of flying direct to Penticton and our business community relies on it. The City has made promoting the airport a priority for our economic development and it is great to see the services not only return to normal but expand.
