WestJet announces scheduled service to Cuba
Airline moves from charter to scheduled service on April 1, 2010
March 31, 2010

WestJet today announced it will fly between Toronto and Varadero, Cayo Coco and Holguin, Cuba, on a scheduled basis effective April 1, 2010. WestJet has served the three destinations on a charter basis since November 2009.

'The response to our WestJet Vacations' charters has been tremendous,' said Hugh Dunleavy, WestJet Executive Vice-President of Strategy and Planning. 'Now, by offering scheduled service to Cuba, our guests can book a flight through their preferred travel agent' (FlyForLess.ca).

'Scheduled WestJet flights are offered to 36 popular sun destinations in the U.S., Mexico and the Caribbean, each with customized vacation packages available through WestJet Vacations,' Hugh Dunleavy adds. 'This venture proved to be a popular choice with the Canadian travelling public and shows great potential for WestJet's continued growth in those sun spot markets.'

The details of WestJet's new scheduled service to Cuba are as follows:
