New flights to New York and Prince George, B.C., begin today
WestJet today launched new daily non-stop service from Calgary International Airport to New York (JFK) and Prince George, B.C., with inaugural flights departing at 10:35 a.m. and 10 p.m. MDT respectively.
“John F. Kennedy International Airport is the busiest international passenger gateway in the United States and a hub for our U.S. partners, American Airlines and Delta Air Lines,” said John Weatherill, WestJet’s Director, Network and Schedule Planning. “With our WestJet code on some 17 flights from JFK, this new daily non-stop service from Calgary offers Canadians low fares and our remarkable guest experience to even more destinations around the world.”
The new route also means easier access to Manhattan via AirTrain JFK. Broadway productions, sight-seeing, shopping and fine dining are closer than ever before.
Today, WestJet also launched new daily non-stop flights between Calgary and Prince George, B.C., which became a part of the WestJet family in 1999.
“Prince George is one of WestJet’s early destinations and we are very grateful for the strong support of northern British Columbians over the past 15 years,” said John Weatherill. “Residents have asked for additional service and starting today, our guests will have the opportunity to take an early-morning, 90-minute flight to Calgary and connect to 27 destinations throughout the WestJet world. Whether heading south for a business meeting or a week-long vacation, we’re very pleased to offer our Prince George guests more connectivity than ever before.”
“As one of the best-connected airports in Canada, the introduction of WestJet service to JFK and Prince George further enhances YYC’s route network options,” said Stephan Poirier, Senior Vice-President & Chief Commercial Officer for The Calgary Airport Authority. “Northern British Columbia will now have a direct link to the more than 70 destinations YYC serves and passengers from all over Canada will enjoy the leisure and business benefits of flying non-stop into the heart of New York City.”
