Historic annoucement for Kootenay Region – new Delta Air Service from Salt Lake City, Utah to Canadian Rockies International this winter starting December 17th 2008!! This is huge news and culmination of 10years of hard work by dedicated team. This service will have significant impact on the Regional economy and will benefit all who live in the communities that the airport provides service for. As will provide a great air access to the world for vacations and for fostering business relationships! We are fortunate to have long-term leadership and dedication to the project by MLA, Bill Bennett, Mayor Ross Priest of Cranbrook, Mayor MacNair of Fernie and Mayor Ogilvie of Kimberley to make this Air Service possible. This new air service is a huge positive step of the Region working together to see a shared vision of being a premier destination to ski, golf, fish, hunt, hike, bike, relax, enjoy nature, sightsee, and play!
