|WESTJET LAUNCHES NEW FLIGHTS FROM VANCOUVER AND CALGARY |
|Daily non-stop service to and from Chicago to take effect in May|
WestJet announced on Feb. 7 that it will launch daily non-stop service between Chicago and Vancouver and between Chicago and Calgary, effective May 14.
The new non-stop service between Vancouver, Calgary and Chicago is subject to government approval, and WestJet will fly these routes with its own Boeing 737 next-generation aircraft.
John MacLeod, WestJet vice-president, network management and alliances said the Chicago addition shows how continued growth and code-share agreements are working together to provide guests with non-stop service from the West as well as the East.
MacLeod also said this route will appeal to both business and leisure travellers looking to experience what Chicago has to offer, as well as for northbound travellers looking to visit Banff and the Rocky Mountains via Calgary or board cruise ships from Vancouver.
Introductory one-way fares start at $149 from Calgary and $169 from Vancouver, plus applicable taxes and fees.
