Any time a country or region imposes any sort of visa stipulation - even if it’s a waiver - the travel industry sighs a collective groan, knowing the obstacles and headaches to come.
CALGARY — WestJet Vacations’ new brochure will be released earlier than ever, at the end of this month, to “support the travel agent community”.
Jane Clementino, WestJet Director, Agency Sales, says that the 2018-2019 WestJet Vacations brochure is “the perfect sales tool for travel agents” and that it has “everything they need to help turn their clients’ vacations dreams into a reality.”
Along with vacation packages to the Caribbean, Mexico, Central America and the U.S., the new brochure will also feature more than 850 hotels, new WestJet Vacations properties, flight information, details on WestJet’s in-flight experience as well as destination overviews including maps and valuable travel tips.
Travel agents can pick up a copy of the brochure (available in English and French) at any of the 2018 WestJet Travel Trade Expos. It will also be available for order from envoynetworks.ca at the end of April.
In other news, two new routes have been added to WestJet’s domestic network, but only for a limited time.
Starting June 29, the airline will launch service between London, Ontario and Vancouver, as well as between Quebec City and Calgary. These limited-edition flights will be offered only during the peak summer travel season.
Quebec City-Calgary will run from June 29 through Sept. 9, four times weekly, nonstop. Service will be reduced to three weekly, nonstop from Sept. 8 through Oct. 26. According to WestJet, the service opens up 18 new destinations via Calgary International Airport, including Saskatoon, Edmonton, Fort McMurray, Vancouver, Kelowna, Victoria, Comox, Nanaimo and its new WestJet Link service to Medicine Hat, Lethbridge and Cranbrook.
London, Ontario-Vancouver will run from June 29 to Sept. 7, three times weekly, nonstop. The service arrives in London in the evening and departs in the morning, opening up six new WestJet destinations including Calgary, Edmonton, Victoria, Fort St. John, Prince George and Kelowna via Vancouver International Airport.
“WestJet is looking forward to providing London and Quebec City with improved connectivity into the broader WestJet network through Vancouver and Calgary respectively this summer,” said Brian Znotins, WestJet Vice-President, Network Planning, Alliances and Corporate Development. “Thanks to these new services, our guests will have more options for travelling to visit friends and family this summer while having a chance to see more of Canada’s history and beauty.”
