Kelowna Airport parking
The most recent investment at YLW saw the parking facilities upgraded alongside the terminal building and the airport is capable of providing spaces for over 2,600 vehicles across the fully lit short- and long-stay parking lots. As it is so well-equipped, Kelowna Airport does not operate a reservation system for parking. However, it is important to note that during peak seasons, these parking facilities can become congested and spaces may be limited.
Situated over the road from the terminal building, YLW’s short-term parking lot is a two-minute walk from check-in. Accessible 24 hours a day, seven days a week, the open-air facility is fully lit, regularly patrolled by security and equipped with priority accessibility parking. It’s the ideal option if you’re only away for a few days and is just a quick walk to and from the terminal.
If you’re away for a week or more or you’re looking to save some money for the trip ahead, Kelowna Airport’s long-stay parking facility is more affordable than the short-stay option and still only a five-minute walk from the terminal.
There is also a complimentary shuttle service from the long-term lot right to the terminal forecourt, which is particularly useful if you’re traveling with family and you’ve got bags to carry (or if it’s not exactly walking weather). Usually parked near the entrance to the long-stay parking lot, simply give a shuttle driver a wave when you arrive and they’ll follow you to your space to take you to the terminal.
Whether you are traveling on business with a schedule to keep or you want to start enjoying your vacation as soon as possible, you can make use of the valet services at YLW. Book your place and simply pull up at the valet kiosk situated on Kelowna Airport’s forecourt, drop your keys off then head straight to check-in. The valet team will park your car and have it ready and waiting for you on the forecourt when you get back.
If you’re ferrying family and friends to and from the airport, your first 15 minutes in either the short-term or long-term parking lots at YLW are completely free. However, if you’d like a bit longer to wish your passengers a good trip, there are a number of metered bays right outside the terminal where you can park for up to 30 minutes.
