WestJet has unveiled its winter schedule for 2010-2011, featuring three new destinations, 10 new routes and expanded service on more than 30 others.
Beginning in November, WestJet will launch seasonal, non-stop service to New Orleans, Santa Clara (Cuba) and Grand Cayman Island, all from Toronto’s Pearson International Airport.
WestJet will also launch new seasonal, non-stop service between the following cities:
-Vancouver, Calgary, Edmonton, Winnipeg, Saskatoon, Regina, Montreal and Montego Bay, Jamaica*
-Montreal, Calgary and Varadero, Cuba
-Toronto and Palm Springs
The Calgary-based carrier will also be extending some of its non-stop service from seasonal to year-round between the following cities:
-Ottawa and Halifax
-Ottawa and Vancouver
-Toronto and Bermuda
-Toronto and Samana, DR
-Toronto and Puerto Vallarta, Mexico
-Montreal and Punta Cana, DR
WestJet will also be increasing frequency on several of its seasonal services over the coming winter from Vancouver, Calgary, Edmonton, Saskatoon, Regina, Winnipeg, Toronto, Ottawa and Montreal to Honolulu, Maui, Cancun, Puerto Vallarta and Cabo San Lucas.
“This winter schedule is a measured, balanced and strategic approach to domestic, trans-border and international growth,” said Hugh Dunleavy, Executive Vice President, Strategy and Planning. “Additional service to and from Ottawa expands upon our growing business travel offering. And, the introduction of new southern destinations from more Canadian gateways offers our guests more choices for their winter vacations.”
