WESTJET, THE OTHER CANADIAN AIRLINE
WestJet has announced the 2014-2015 winter schedule featuring two new destinations, one new route and increased frequency on 19 additional routes.
Weekly flights between Winnipeg and Fort Lauderdale operate Saturdays starting November 1, 2014.
"We have more flights and more seats to the places Canadians want to go," said Chris Avery, WestJet vice-president, Network Planning, Alliances and Corporate Development.
"Our newest destinations offer exciting adventures at home and abroad. Loreto, Mexico may be one of the best places you've never heard of, where visitors enjoy everything from sport fishing and sea-kayaking to eco-tourism adventures. Fredericton, as the latest Encore destination, reinforces our commitment to make WestJet Encore connect Canadians from coast to coast."
"The introductory pricing for these markets represents our focus on being Canada's low fare leader," said Paul Harvalias, WestJet vice-president, Revenue Management.
"Whether you're looking for the lowest price possible through our Econo fares or the flexibility, convenience and amenities found in Plus, we are committed to providing Canadians with the best value for their travel dollar."
WestJet also announced it will launch twice-daily, non-stop service between Toronto and Fredericton, New Brunswick, effective April 15, 2015.
Flights will be operated by WestJet Encore using its fleet of 78-seat, Canadian-made Bombardier Q400 NextGen aircraft.
"The launch of service to Fredericton marks WestJet Encore's eastern-most destination to date," said Ferio Pugliese, WestJet Executive Vice-President and President, WestJet Encore.
"We are delighted Fredericton has been chosen as the first destination to receive WestJet Encore in the Maritime Provinces," says David Innes, President and CEO, Fredericton International Airport.
"Our region has tremendous vitality and access to WestJet service was identified by our passengers as a high priority during our Community Air Access Strategy discussions in 2013."
