WestJet is celebrating the launch of its new Calgary-Charlottetown route, with the new non-stop flights directly linking Western Canada to Prince Edward Island for the first time and marking a positive sign for both region’s travel and tourism markets.
John Weatherill, WestJet Chief Commercial Officer, said that: “The introduction of new service between Prince Edward Island and Calgary is an important milestone for WestJet, our guests and these communities.”
Weatherill pointed out that: “As vaccination rates across Canada continue to rise and restrictions ease, there’s no better way to demonstrate our commitment to Canada’s economic recovery than by seeing our investments take off as we continue to restore our network and reconnect Canadians from coast-to-coast.”
WestJet’s new twice-weekly, non-stop service between Charlottetown and Calgary operates on Thursdays and Sunday. The service was previously set to begin in June 2020 but was delayed due to the pandemic.
