WestJet is offering flexible change and cancel options for guests travelling to or from Terrace, Prince George, Kamloops, Penticton, and Kelowna until August 22.

“We continue to monitor the situation and advise all guests to check their flight status before arriving at the airport,” Morgan Bell, of WestJet, told Daily Hive.
