WestJet launched its newest daily service out of Halifax with the departure of flight 3712 to Boston on Friday.
"WestJet Encore is pleased to begin flying year-round between Halifax Stanfield International Airport and Boston’s Logan International Airport,” said Ferio Pugliese, President, WestJet Encore, and Executive Vice President, WestJet. "We are delighted to join these two cities, which have historically shared a strong bond. This is another example of WestJet Encore's expanding network in Atlantic Canada, which is providing both business and leisure travellers with more choice along with lower fares and caring WestJet service."
Since 2005, WestJet and WestJet Encore have accounted for more than 60% of the increase in flights out of Nova Scotia and almost 90% of the growth of available seat miles (ASMs) out of YHZ. WestJet now serves 17 non-stop destinations from Halifax: 10 domestic and 7 international and transborder routes including Boston; Cancun; Punta Cana; Fort Lauderdale; Orlando; Tampa & Glasgow.
