Airline unveils new destinations and routes for the winter of 2010-2011
July 7, 2010

WestJet today unveiled its winter schedule for 2010-2011, featuring three new destinations, 10 new routes and expanded service on more than 30 others - and at everyday low fares all year-round.

Beginning in November 2010, WestJet will launch seasonal, non-stop service to New Orleans, Santa Clara (Cuba) and Grand Cayman Island, all from Toronto's Pearson International Airport.

WestJet will also launch new seasonal, non-stop service between the following cities:

  • Vancouver, Calgary, Edmonton, Winnipeg, Saskatoon, Regina, Montreal and Montego Bay, Jamaica
  • Montreal, Calgary and Varadero, Cuba
  • Toronto and Palm Springs
  • WestJet will extend its non-stop service from seasonal to year-round between the following cities:

  • Ottawa and Halifax
  • Ottawa and Vancouver
  • Toronto and Bermuda
  • Toronto and Samana, DR
  • Toronto and Puerto Vallarta
  • Montreal and Punta Cana
  • WestJet will increase the number of seasonal, non-stop flights this winter from Vancouver, Calgary, Edmonton, Saskatoon, Regina, Winnipeg, Toronto, Ottawa and Montreal to exciting destinations such as Honolulu, Maui, Cancun, Puerto Vallarta and Cabo San Lucas

    'This winter schedule is a measured, balanced and strategic approach to domestic, trans-border and international growth,' said Hugh Dunleavy, Executive Vice-President, Strategy and Planning. 'Along with our high-value frequent guest program we launched in March, additional service to and from Ottawa expands upon our growing business travel offering. And, the introduction of new southern destinations from more Canadian gateways offers our guests more choices for their winter vacations.'

    'We are also pleased to announce seasonal, non-stop service to three new destinations from Toronto's Pearson International Airport,' continued Hugh Dunleavy. 'Our valued relationship with the Greater Toronto Airports Authority is a key building block to our ongoing, strategic approach to growth from Toronto.'

    'WestJet's continued commitment to growing services for the benefit of passengers using Toronto Pearson has been shown again by the announcement of these new routes,' added Pamela Griffith-Jones, Chief Commercial Officer for the Greater Toronto Airports Authority. 'We will continue to work with WestJet to support their needs and to help offer more choice and more routes for the communities we serve.'

    Here are details of WestJet's new service to New Orleans, Grand Cayman and Santa Clara:
