Canadian low-cost carrier WestJet today added a new twice-weekly non-stop route between Calgary and Terrace effective from 4 September bringing the number of destinations it serves from Calgary to 63 – more than any other airline.
Operated by WestJet Encore using Bombardier Q400 aircraft, the additional service will benefit the entire northwest region of the province which continues to be economically strong due to investment in forestry, mining, smelting, hydroelectricity, liquefied natural gas and infrastructure projects in the Kitimat-Terrace industrial corridor.
WestJet vice president of network planning, alliances and corporate development, Brian Znotins said: “Given the critical importance of transportation in creating and supporting economic development, this additional service will benefit the economy and the community as a whole.”
WestJet Encore also operates twice-daily service to Vancouver. Both routes provide the opportunity to conveniently connect to and from Honolulu, Maui, Kauai and Kona, Las Vegas, Phoenix, Cancun, Puerto Vallarta, Cabo and Mazatlan in addition to connecting to the remainder of WestJet’s extensive domestic, transborder and international network.
