Game On!

WestJet is calling hockey fans across Manitoba to board its jets headed to Las Vegas, Nevada. The airline has added two special nonstop flights between Winnipeg and Las Vegas on May 17 and May 20.

John Weatherill, WestJet’s vice-president, pricing and revenue management and chief Winnipeg hockey fan, said that: “WestJet is thrilled to support the Winnipeg hockey community and our WestJetters in their love of Canada’s game. We look forward to flying the spirit of Canadian hockey to Las Vegas and welcoming fans on board our jets for a convenient nonstop flight.”

The special flights will operate in both directions from Winnipeg to Las Vegas on May 17 and 20. Manitobans wishing to travel outside of these times can also fly nonstop from Winnipeg to Las Vegas, twice weekly this summer on Thursdays and Sundays or up to three times daily through Calgary.

Seats are for sale now on and additional flights may be determined at the whims of the hockey gods.
