WestJet today announced the launch of new seasonal non-stop service between Toronto and Samana, Dominican Republic. The inaugural flight departs from Toronto's Pearson International Airport at 10 a.m. EDT today.
'Samana is the one of the Dominican Republic's best kept secrets and WestJet is excited to bring Canadian travellers to this part of the island,' said Hugh Dunleavy, WestJet Executive Vice-President, Strategy and Planning. 'The gorgeous blend of white, sandy coastline and lush rainforests provide ample opportunity to see the local beauty and culture of the Samana area. The popularity of the Dominican Republic is soaring with the addition of destinations to our ever-expanding Caribbean network, in combination with WestJet Vacations' reputation for offering low-cost, high-value vacation packages.'
WestJet will fly between Toronto and Samana once weekly on Saturday until October 30, 2010.
