            WestJet today began operating its new nonstop flight between Austin-Bergstrom International Airport (AUS) and Calgary International Airport (YYC). The new destination adds to WestJet's network out of Calgary where the airline operates the most flights to the most destinations.

"We're thrilled to welcome the fun, funky and innovative city of Austin to the WestJet network," said Arved von zur Muehlen, WestJet Chief Commercial Officer. "Including the just-launched destinations of Atlanta and Portland, these three key markets help diversify Alberta's economy, open new trade links and forge stronger connections between Alberta and these major destinations. We are pleased to share our caring Canadian spirit with Texans once again."

"WestJet's new daily, nonstop air service between Calgary and Austin will enhance the already close ties that this city has with the state of Texas," said Lucia C. Piazza, Consul General for Alberta, Saskatchewan and the Northwest Territories.  "This service will allow Canadians easy access to the dynamic economy and flourishing cultural scene that Austin offers, either as a final destination or as a gateway to points beyond.  Likewise, Texans will be able to enjoy increased access to Alberta to explore and do business."

Austin is WestJet's second destination in Texas where the airline also operates twice-daily flights to Houston.
