WestJet to operate 230 direct routes from Canada to the southern U.S., Mexico, the Caribbean and Central America this winter season

WestJet has announced its winter schedule which includes many key domestic and international routes from summer to year-round service.

John Weatherill, WestJet Group, Executive Vice-President and Chief Commercial Officer, "This year's winter schedule is about providing Canadians with what they want: affordable sun destination getaways from across Canada; enhanced domestic connectivity from coast-to-coast; and the assurance that some of our most popular routes, previously operated exclusively in the summer, are available year-round,".

Expansion of service to sun destinations

In alignment with WestJet's growth strategy and providing more affordable leisure and sun travel opportunities, this winter the airline is increasing getaway opportunities with new service to some of WestJet's most popular sun destinations. Featuring four new and four returning routes, WestJet's winter schedule will see more than 85 daily departures on average to sun destinations from communities across Canada. Additionally, in response to high demand for travel to the popular beaches of Mexico, WestJet will proudly serve as the airline providing the most flights to over 10 Mexican destinations from Canada this winter. 

Year-round extensions

Due to exceptional demand, WestJet is extending key routes, highly utilized by its guests this summer, to operate year-round.
