Kelowna International Airport has them all this year and as a result has hit the annual one-millionth-passenger count earlier in the year than ever before.
"In 2005, we reached our first millionth passenger that year around December 10," said airport manager Sam Samaddar.
"Last year, it was mid-September. To top that number this year in August was a surprise."
At the end of August, the eight-month passenger count was an astounding 1,001,294, up three per cent over the same period last year.
"This year, and especially this summer, has been phenomenal for air travel," said Samaddar.
"It coincides with the great tourist season felt throughout the Valley this July and August."
In fact, July and August were the two busiest months in the airport's history, with more than 307,000 passengers passing through.
As well, every month so far this year has been a record-breaker.
As a regional hub airport, Kelowna attracts flyers from throughout the Southern Interior to catch flights to 17 destinations.
Year-round regular services include non-stop flights to Vancouver, Calgary, Los Angeles, Edmonton, Victoria, Prince George, Whitehorse, Seattle, Toronto, Abbotsford and Red Deer.
Seasonal non-stops to sun spots include Phoenix, Las Vegas, Cabo San Lucas, Cancun, Puerto Vallarta and, new this year, Ixtapa/Zihuatanejo with Sunwing.
After a four-month trial over the summer, Air North has announced it will fly year-round between Kelowna and Whitehorse with two flights a week.
People in the North want to come to Kelowna for the Okanagan's mild winters.
However, adventure-seekers from the Okanagan are expected to head north in the winter for dog sledding and viewing the Northern Lights.
"As we head into a busy winter travel season, we are looking forward to the outcome of 2013," said Samaddar.
The total passenger count for 2013 is projected to be 1.5 million.
Last year, it was 1.45 million.
