WestJet adding more sun

WestJet is adding four new sun destinations and extend two more from seasonal to year-round as part of its 2012-2013 winter schedule. In the Caribbean, WestJet is adding Antigua & Barbuda, Curacao and Costa Rica — all from Toronto Pearson International Airport. The carrier’s newest Mexican destination is Manzanillo, via Calgary International Airport. John MacLeod, WestJet’s vice-president, alliances, strategy and chief network officer, said that: “The addition of these new sun destinations as part of our 2012-2013 winter schedule demonstrates our ongoing strategic focus on expanding our offerings within the popular sun destination market.” MacLeod pointed out that: “With some two dozen Caribbean hotspots and seven destinations in Mexico, Canadians looking for the sun this winter will have no shortage of choices for their getaway vacations.” As well, WestJet’s upcoming winter schedule will extend non-stop service between Toronto Pearson and Kingston, Jamaica, from seasonal to year-round status, and increase non-stop service between Aruba and Toronto Pearson from once to twice weekly. New routes this year include Kelowna-Los Angeles, Ottawa-Fort Myers, London-Varadero, Thunder Bay-Cancun, Montreal-Turks and Caicos, Montreal-St. Martin, St. John’s-Punta Cana and Winnipeg-Cabo San Lucas. WestJet will also expand service from various Canadian cities to Hawaii, California, Las Vegas, Phoenix, Mexico, Jamaica and the Dominican Republic. WestJet Vacations will offer packages to Costa Rica, Manzanillo and Antigua and Barbuda and is reintroducing its popular price guarantee. Under its terms, should an identical WestJet Vacations package decrease in price at any time prior to 21 days before departure, guests and travel agents can call WestJet Vacations and the difference in cost will be refunded to the original form of payment. The guarantee can also be used multiple times should the price continue to drop.
