Kelowna’s largest lands at YLW N eed some Tim’s before hitting the sky? Kelowna International Airport (YLW) is pleased to welcome Tim Hortons to its food and beverage concession program. With a seating capacity of 90 seats, YLW has the bragging rights as Kelowna’s largest Tim Hortons. As the only Airport Tim Hortons in Canada to offer full service, including china dishware, the newest restaurant was officially opened at Kelowna International Airport on December 5th 2008. “This is a perfect fit for us and the airport,” says David Mah, Skyway Gourmet Ventures President. “We look forward to the opportunity to offer customers this expanded food and beverage service.” Skyway Ventures has the food services contract at YLW which also manages the Skyway Lounge, the Skyway Café and Bar, and the Airport’s WhiteSpot Restaurant and Lounge. “In the airport’s annual customer satisfaction survey, passengers have indicated they want branded food services,” says Airport Advisory Chair and Kelowna Mayor Sharon Shepherd. “We are pleased to welcome Tim Hortons to this facility offering quality food at reasonable prices – two concepts that I believe our passengers will appreciate.” Business hours for the new Tim Hortons are Monday to Sunday from 4:30 a.m. to 10 p.m. Customers can find the restaurant located in the main terminal across from the check-in counters, serving passengers before they head through security. The Tim Hortons chain was founded in 1964 in Hamilton, Ontario. The chain’s focus on top quality, always fresh product, value, great service and community leadership has allowed it to grow into the largest quick service restaurant chain in Canada specializing in always fresh coffee, baked goods and homestyle lunches. The new Tim Hortons located at YLW is their 13th airport location in Canada. n On hand to toast the new facility (l-r) Airport Director Sam Samaddar, David Mah President Skyway Gourmet Ventures, Kelowna City Councillor Michele Rule, Chair of the Airport Advisory Committee and Kelowna Mayor Sharon Shepherd, and Jeff Parkinson Tim Hortons District Manager.
