Go Jets Go! WestJet to offer extra flights to Vegas ahead of Western Conference showdown

Friday, May 11, 2018

WINNIPEG — The Winnipeg Jets are the toast of the town – scratch that, the entire country – after defeating the Nashville Predators in Game 7 of their second-round NHL playoff series last night. Now, with the best-of-seven Western Conference final up next against the Vegas Golden Knights, WestJet is making sure our hometown heroes get a bit of extra red-and-white support in Sin City.

The airline has announced that it will be adding two special nonstop flights between Winnipeg and Las Vegas on May 17 and May 20 so that die-hard fans can cheer on their Jets in person. WestJet is the only airline to offer nonstop service from Winnipeg to McCarran International Airport.

“WestJet is thrilled to support the Winnipeg hockey community and our WestJetters in their love of Canada’s game,” said John Weatherill, WestJet Vice President, Pricing and Revenue Management and ‘Chief Winnipeg Hockey Fan’. “We look forward to flying the spirit of Canadian hockey to Las Vegas and welcoming fans onboard our jets for a convenient nonstop flight.”

The special flights will operate in both directions from Winnipeg to Las Vegas. Manitobans wishing to travel outside of these times can also fly nonstop from Winnipeg to Las Vegas, twice weekly this summer on Thursdays and Sundays, or up to three times daily through Calgary.
