WestJet Lands In Roatán

WestJet is celebrating the launch of its new service between Toronto and Roatán, Honduras.

Arved von zur Muelhen, chief commercial officer for WestJet, said: “With our new seasonal non-stop service guests can now enjoy a superior travel experience when flying to this Caribbean paradise. These flights strengthen tourism ties and are a win for leisure travellers looking to explore Roatán’s beautiful barrier reefs and white sand beaches.”

With access to 14 Caribbean destinations non-stop from Toronto this winter, WestJet’s new service to Roatán is operated on the airline’s Boeing 737 aircraft featuring WestJet’s Premium and Economy cabins.

Alexander Leon, Trade Commissioner, Canadian Embassy for Costa Rica, Honduras and Nicaragua noted that: “In the last five years, there has been a 60% increase in the number of Canadians travelling to Roatán.”

Leon continued: “Tourism is one of the sectors that most directly and positively affects the well-being of people of the local community. Congratulations to WestJet on opening this new flight from Toronto to Roatán that will bring great benefits to Hondurans and Canadians alike.”

WestJet’s flights are timed to optimize connectivity to its Toronto hub and provide for WestJet Rewards accumulation and redemption along with additional benefits for WestJet Rewards top tier members.
