WestJet plane- April 29

WestJet has launched new daily non-stop service between Toronto and Phoenix, Arizona.

“Already a popular destination from Western Canada, we are delighted to offer even more non-stop service to the Valley of the Sun,” said Chris Avery, WestJet vice-president, Network Planning, Alliances and Corporate Development. “With hundreds of golf courses, countless world-class conference and convention facilities, and of course the Grand Canyon, one of the seven natural wonders of the world, Arizona is a must for Canadians looking to escape the winter cold.”

WestJet has also launched new daily non-stop service between Calgary and Penticton, BC.

“Whether it’s skiing and snowboarding through the champagne powder at Apex Mountain Resort in the winter or wake boarding on Okanagan Lake in the summer, it truly is a community with year-round appeal and we’re pleased to be bringing visitors to the region to enjoy all it has to offer,” said Paul Harvalias, WestJet vice-president, Revenue Management. “ And of course, having dozens of wineries within a short drive makes the ‘aprés’ activities even more relaxing.”

South Okanagan travellers will be able to connect via Calgary to and from Los Angeles and Las Vegas, WestJet’s most-popular US destination, as well as Canadian destinations such as Victoria, Vancouver, Fort McMurray, Edmonton, Saskatoon, Regina, Winnipeg, Hamilton, Toronto, Ottawa and Halifax.
