WestJet has launched new flights from Edmonton to Hamilton, Ont., and Winnipeg (pictured) to Kelowna, BC.

Flights are available for sale as of today (June 27) with service commencing July 28.

“These are cities we presently serve yet don’t connect with non-stop flying,” said Bob Cummings, WestJet executive vice-president, Commercial. “These routes have been on our radar for a while now and with the busy summer flying season upon us, we examined our fleet plans to see if there was extra flying we could provide.”

Hamilton-Edmonton flights will operate four times weekly through Sept. 5, while Winnipeg-Kelowna service will run three times weekly through Sept. 6.

WestJet also announced enhanced schedules between Vancouver and Winnipeg, and Edmonton and Vancouver. Starting July 28 through Sept. 6, flights operating between Vancouver and Winnipeg will operate 24 times weekly. Flights between Edmonton and Vancouver will operate 54 times weekly.
