WestJet has launched service to Mexico City from Calgary, to be followed by flights from Vancouver to the Mexican capital beginning today (March 15).
“WestJet is proud to be at the forefront of expanding on vital trade and tourism linkages between Mexico and Canada,” said WestJet president Ed Sims. “Non-stop, year-round flights from Calgary and Vancouver to Mexico City connect the country to one of the most important major markets in the Americas and expand on growing opportunities for Canada/Mexico tourism.”
WestJet begins service with four weekly flights between Calgary and Mexico City. WestJet’s Vancouver service will launch three-times weekly. Effective April 29, both routes move to daily service.
WestJet first landed in Mexico in 2007 and now serves 11 cities in Mexico from 15 Canadian cities. The airline’s growth in Mexico makes up nearly 10% its available seat miles and at peak winter schedule, WestJet will operate up to 37 daily flights.
