New year-round service between Regina and Minneapolis to launch next year....

The Canadian airline WestJet will introduce a new year-round, daily service connecting Regina and Minneapolis, as part of the airline's 2024 summer schedule.





 The news reaffirms the airline's ongoing commitment to providing connectivity to the province and further enhances Regina's air access to popular destinations. The route is Regina's first year-round transborder service since 2016 and marks the province's second direct route to the Midwest United States, following the launch of WestJet's year-round service between Saskatoon and Minneapolis, launched in June earlier this year.

"We are thrilled to answer the call of the community and further our commitment to Regina and the surrounding area by bringing vital year-round transborder connectivity with service to Minneapolis, beginning this summer," says Jared Mikoch-Gerke, WestJet Director of Alliances & Airport Affairs. "Our newest investment in Regina will further support the economic growth of the region and unlock business and leisure travel opportunities, as we accelerate providing affordable travel to our guests."
