WestJet has announced its winter schedule, offering opportunities for Canadians to plan winter escapes.
The airline is expanding its service to popular sun destinations, adding four new and four returning routes, resulting in more than 85 daily departures to these destinations from cities across Canada. WestJet will serve as the airline providing the most flights to more than 10 Mexican destinations from Canada this winter.
“This year’s winter schedule is about providing Canadians with what they want: affordable sun destination getaways from across Canada; enhanced domestic connectivity from coast-to-coast; and the assurance that some of our most popular routes, previously operated exclusively in the summer, are available year-round,” said John Weatherill, WestJet Group, executive vice-president and chief commercial officer.
WestJet will also introduce new non-stop seasonal service between Toronto and Bonaire, starting December 12, 2023 as part of the airline’s efforts to enhance capacity and commitment to the Greater Toronto Area.
Through WestJet’s codeshare partnerships, guests connecting through Paris, Atlanta or Minneapolis will arrive in Air France’s or Delta’s major hubs, respectively, gaining access to a vast network of European and U.S. destinations on a single purchased ticket.
The airline’s growth plan includes expanding options to ensure guests can seamlessly travel from coast to coast. WestJet is extending two more key domestic routes from Calgary to Moncton and St. John’s respectively, from summer to year-round service.
“We are more committed than ever to building on our momentum, strengthening Canada’s east to west connectivity year-round,” continued Weatherill. “Strong connections fostered between Eastern and Western Canada are essential to the communities we serve and bolstering business and tourism opportunities throughout our country.”
Sunwing Airlines, as part of the WestJet Group, is also playing a crucial role in offering leisure and sun travel options across the country.
Together, WestJet and Sunwing Airlines will provide the highest number of seats among Canadian airlines, covering 230 nonstop routes from 26 Canadian communities to 55 popular sun destinations in the U.S., Mexico, the Caribbean, and Central America for the upcoming winter season.
