WestJet 2014-2015 winter schedule

We are pleased to announce our 2014-2015 winter schedule featuring two new destinations, one new route and increased frequency on 19 additional routes. Twice-daily non-stop service between Toronto and Fredericton begins April 15, 2015, and weekly non-stop service between Calgary and Loreto, Mexico, launches February 14, 2015. Weekly flights between Winnipeg and Fort Lauderdale operate Saturdays starting November 1, 2014.

“We have more flights and more seats to the places Canadians want to go,” said Chris Avery, WestJet Vice-President, Network Planning, Alliances and Corporate Development. “Our newest destinations offer exciting adventures at home and abroad. Loreto, Mexico may be one of the best places you’ve never heard of, where visitors enjoy everything from sport fishing and sea-kayaking to eco-tourism adventures. Fredericton, as the latest Encore destination, reinforces our commitment to make WestJet Encore connect Canadians from coast to coast.”

Earlier this year, we unveiled four additional new routes as part the 2014-2015 winter schedule. WestJet Encore service between Calgary and Penticton begins October 26, 2014, Edmonton to Kamloops service starts February 15, 2015, and Quebec City welcomes twice-daily flights beginning March 15, 2015.
