WestJet connects Regina and Minneapolis
WestJet has announced a new, year-round, daily service connecting Regina and Minneapolis as part of its 2024 summer schedule.
With the announcement, WestJet reaffirms its ongoing commitment to providing connectivity to the province and further enhances Regina’s air access to popular destinations.
The route is Regina’s first year-round transborder service since 2016 and marks the province’s second direct route to the Midwest United States, following the launch of WestJet’s year-round service between Saskatoon and Minneapolis, launched in June earlier this year.
Jared Mikoch-Gerke, WestJet Director of Alliances & Airport Affairs, said: “We are thrilled to answer the call of the community and further our commitment to Regina and surrounding area by bringing vital year-round transborder connectivity with service to Minneapolis, beginning this summer.”
Mikoch-Gerke added: “Our newest investment in Regina will further support the economic growth of the region and unlock business and leisure travel opportunities, as we accelerate providing affordable travel to our guests.”
Passengers travelling beyond Minneapolis will have access to a broad network and benefits through WestJet’s relationship with Delta Air Lines. This includes codeshare flights to over 70 connecting destinations, now accessible with only one stop from Regina; the ability to earn and redeem WestJet Rewards on both airlines; and top tier frequent flyer benefits through the entire journey.
