WestJet has launched its new route between Quebec City and Montreal, the airline’s first non-stop flight within the province of Quebec.
WestJet will operate four flights daily connecting the two cities.
“WestJet’s introduction of our first-ever point-to-point service within Quebec brings lower fares and an elevated inflight experience to ‘la belle province’ and is the next step in our mandate to become a truly national carrier,” said Charles Duncan, president, WestJet Encore.
The new route is the second of three the airline announced earlier this year – bringing more choice and competition to the Quebec market. On March 15, WestJet launched twice-daily service between Montreal and Halifax. And, on Oct. 15, the carrier will begin twice-daily service between Montreal and Boston.
The Quebec-City/Montreal route is operated by WestJet’s regional airline, WestJet Encore, on its fleet of Canadian-made Bombardier Q400s.
