Open Jaw

WS has announced 3 new non-stop seasonal routes. In June, the carrier will start service between YBR and YYZ. As well, the YYC-based carrier will offer flights from YVR to 2 regional Ontario airports – YHM and YXU.

"These new flights provide our guests in Brandon, London and Hamilton even more access to the WestJet network with non-stop service, greater convenience and more connectivity this summer," said John Weatherill, Director, Network & Schedule Planning.

"After a long wait, YBR travellers will be able to fly non-stop to Toronto and access WestJet's growing list of domestic and international destinations beyond YYZ. In addition, we have opened up the West Coast to our guests in YHM and YXU, who will now have the opportunity to fly non-stop to Vancouver and beyond." 

From 28JUN to 05SEP, WS will offer 4 weekly, non-stop flights between YBR and YYZ. Flights arrive YBR in the evening and depart in the morning. The new service opens up 13 new WS destinations and 20 new codeshare destinations via YYZ to Eastern Canada, the United States, Caribbean, Mexico and Europe.

From 29JUN to 05SEP, WS will offer 4 weekly, non-stop flights between YXU and YVR and from 30JUN to 04SEP, WS will offer 3 times weekly, non-stop service between YHM and YVR.

"We are keeping our capacity plans fluid for 2016 and will continue to adjust our schedules and stimulate demand to optimize our results," said Weatherill. "Based on guests' response during this summer, we will determine if these 3 routes are viable options for the future."
