While Penticton Airport is open, commercial flights are being affected by the heavy smoke and limited visibility. If you have an upcoming flight, check with your airline directly for the latest updates.

Penticton Airport is home to a BC Wildfire base, where contracted air tankers as well as contract helicopters are deployed to respond to regional wildfires.


Warnings: Boaters and drones

Boaters are reminded to stay away from air tankers that may be collecting water from Okanagan and Skaha Lakes to support their operations. When aircraft are approaching lake surfaces for this purpose, it is requested that boat traffic visually monitor overhead flight paths and avoid any areas where air tankers can be seen making passes over water to replenish their loads. 

As well, drone users are asked to keep away from the fire zones as they are also a safety threat to crews.
