1 min read

The FINANCIAL — On February 22, WestJet announced three non-stop seasonal routes offering Canadian travellers even greater choices for connectivity and convenience this summer.

In June, WestJet will start service between Brandon, Manitoba and Toronto Pearson International Airport. In addition, the airline will start service between Vancouver and both Hamilton, and London, ON. WestJet’s limited-addition flights will be offered only during the peak summer travel season, according to WestJet.

“These new flights provide our guests in Brandon, London and Hamilton even more access to the WestJet network with non-stop service, greater convenience and more connectivity this summer,” said John Weatherill, Director, Network and Schedule Planning. “After a long wait, Brandon travellers will be able to fly non-stop to Toronto and access WestJet’s growing list of domestic and international destinations beyond Toronto Pearson. In addition, we have opened up the West Coast to our guests in Hamilton and London, ON who will now have the opportunity to fly non-stop to Vancouver and beyond.” 

From June 28 to September 5, 2016, WestJet will offer four weekly, non-stop flights between Brandon, Manitoba and Toronto. Flights arrive in Brandon in the evening and depart in the morning. The new service opens up 13 new WestJet destinations and 20 new codeshare destinations via Toronto Pearson to Eastern Canada, the United States, Caribbean, Mexico and Europe.

From June 29 to September 5, 2016, WestJet will offer four weekly, non-stop flights between London, Ontario and Vancouver.  From June 30 to September 4, 2016, WestJet will offer three-time weekly, non-stop service between Hamilton, Ontario and Vancouver.
