WestJet To Fly From YYZ To LAX, BNA & BOS This Summer

WestJet will launch new non-stop service from Toronto to Nashville, Los Angeles and Boston as part of its 2016 summer schedule. The additions will take the airline’s total number of destinations over the century mark to 101

 

"We are excited about our schedule and connectivity out of Toronto," said Bob Cummings, WestJet Executive Vice President, Commercial. "By this summer we will operate more than 120 flights per day from Toronto including new services to Nashville, Los Angeles and Boston in addition to our previously announced daily service to London, England. Building on our already strong connectivity into Toronto from across Canada is a key element of our strategy for profitable growth."

 

WestJet also says it has enhanced schedules for business travellers with additional service from Toronto to Ottawa, Montreal and Fredericton as well as between Ottawa and Halifax.  

 

Starting 15JUN, WS will offer 12 daily flights between YYZ and YOW as well as YYZ and YUL. YYZ and YFC will have a total of 3 daily flights as of 05MAR. 3 daily flights between YYZ and BOS will begin 15MAR. With additional service between YOW and YHZ there will be a total of 3 daily flights between the cities as of 05MAR.

 

"We look forward to offering guests more options in their travel schedules along with our recently enhanced Plus product, WestJet Connect and continued WestJet Rewards program improvements,” said Cummings.

 

In addition to enhanced business travel schedules, new 3 weekly non-stop flights are being added between YVR and SAN. YVR will also see additional service to LAX, HNL and OGG while YYZ will see additional service to MCO, TPA, FLL and MYR. Seasonal routes from YHZ and YYT to MCO will now operate year-round.

 

WestJet also announced a new non-stop route from YYC to YQT, however, the enhanced schedules from other gateways are the result of the carrier cutting or reducing flights between B.C. and Alberta by 05MAR.. 

Travellers can blame the downturn in oil prices, said WS spokeswoman Lauren Stewart. "With the downturn in the economy, we are seeing less demand for travel to and from energy markets."

By summer 2016, WestJet and WestJet Encore will operate approximately 4,590 flights per week to 101 destinations: 38 in Canada, 27 in the U.S., 33 in the Caribbean and Mexico and 3 in Europe.
