WestJet will compete directly with Air Canada with its newly announced YYC-BOS route in summer 2020.
WestJet's seasonal daily non-stop service between its Calgary hub and Boston, Mass. will start 14MAY, 2020, while AC's route, announced 10DEC, begins 22JUN.
Arved von zur Muehlen, WestJet Chief Commercial Officer, addressed the competition directly, saying, "While other carriers may fly the route, WestJet continues to build our schedule for the region's business and leisure travellers. It's never been easier to explore and do business in Calgary, Boston and beyond."
