WestJet will begin non-stop 2X-weekly seasonal service between John C. Munro Hamilton International Airport and McCarran International Airport in Las Vegas, effective 29DEC.
"As Hamilton International's largest airline, as well as the carrier with the most international flights into Las Vegas, WestJet continues to add new service in Southern Ontario," said Brian Znotins, WestJet Vice-President, Network Planning, Alliances and Corporate Development.
"This new non-stop flight connects the community to a highly desirable leisure market and offers a great schedule to those looking to fly directly from Hamilton and surrounding communities without having to drive or connect through Toronto."
"We are very pleased that WestJet is operating non-stop service from Hamilton," said Rosemary Vassiliadis, Director of Aviation at McCarran International Airport. "Las Vegas has long been a proven winner among Canadians, particularly in the wintertime, so we're looking forward to many more travellers taking advantage of the convenience offered by this latest extension of WestJet's non-stop network into our area."
The service will operate on Mondays and Fridays from 29-DEC through 27APR, 2018.
This winter, WS will offer a total of 63 weekly flights to LAS from eight cities across Canada including Vancouver, Calgary, Edmonton, Regina, Saskatoon, Winnipeg, Toronto and Hamilton.
