WestJet has announced it will increase its non-stop flight service between Vancouver and Toronto as Canadians prepare for the busy travel season.
WestJet will add nearly two dozen more flights between May 3 and October 24, increasing overall capacity between Vancouver and Toronto by more than 10 per cent. The schedule features up to 10 daily flights in the spring, 11 during the peak travel months of July and August, and nine in the fall.
“This is the time of year when many Canadians sit down to make their summer travel plans,” said Chris Avery, WestJet’s Vice-President, Network Planning, Alliances and Corporate Development. “WestJet’s extensive domestic, transborder and international network of more than 90 cities in 20 countries opens up a world of possibilities. Whether visiting family and friends or taking a much-needed summer holiday, Canadians know they can depend on WestJet’s trusted brand, low fares and remarkable guest experience.”
WestJet also offers up to 12 daily non-stop flights between Calgary and Toronto, nine from Edmonton to Toronto and six from Winnipeg to Toronto. From Toronto, guests connecting eastward have 10 cities in Quebec and Atlantic Canada to choose from, as well as eight destinations in the U.S. and 21 throughout Mexico, the Caribbean and Central America.
WestJet’s growing network now includes Europe and the U.K. Beginning May 29, 2015, WestJet will offer seasonal daily flights between Toronto and Glasgow, Scotland, with a brief stop in Halifax. This follows the airline’s hugely successful launch of its first transatlantic service between Toronto and Dublin, Ireland, via St. John’s, last summer. Seasonal daily flights to Dublin resume on May 1, 2015.
“The confidence and trust Canadians have in WestJet allows us to continue to grow and offer more destinations,” said Chris Avery. “As we approach our 19th birthday at the end of this month, we are enormously grateful for their support and loyalty.”
