WestJet Encore Launches Twice-Daily YFC/YYZ Service
Yesterday marked the 1st flights for WestJet Encore twice-daily non-stop service between Toronto and Fredericton.
"Fredericton is an important destination that represents our commitment to bring increased competition and lower fares to Atlantic Canada," said Ferio Pugliese, WestJet Executive Vice President and President, WestJet Encore. "We know that traffic at new WestJet Encore destinations can increase by as much as 40 to 55% after we launch service, and we look forward to making it possible for more New Brunswickers to travel more often."
Flights will leave YYZ at 7:55 am and 2:50 pm each day, arriving YFC at 11:04 am and 5:59 pm respectively. Return flights will depart YFC at 11:45 am and 6:35 pm, arriving YYZ at 1:16 pm and 8:06 pm.
"This twice-daily service connects our travellers with WestJet's entire network via Toronto," said Johanne Gallant, Fredericton International Airport CEO. "That means more choice for travellers, increased capacity to handle the passenger traffic that continues to break records here at the Fredericton airport and improved access to markets for our business community. We're thrilled to launch this new flight and this new partnership."
Same-day connections are available via YYZ to a variety of WestJet's domestic and international destinations including Montreal, Ottawa, Thunder Bay, Winnipeg, Regina, Saskatoon, Calgary, Edmonton, Fort McMurray, Vancouver, New York (LaGuardia), Las Vegas, Orlando and Port of Spain.
