CALGARY — WestJet’s just-announced summer 2019 schedule includes two brand new seasonal U.S. destinations.
The carrier says it will launch daily nonstop service to Portland, OR on April 29 and twice-weekly service to Austin, TX on May 2.
The new routes complement the addition of Atlanta, GA starting March 3, says Arved von zur Muehlen, WestJet Chief Commercial Officer. All three new routes will operate out of Calgary.
“These three key markets help diversify Alberta’s economy, open new trade links and forge stronger connections between Alberta and these major destinations,” says von zur Muehlen.
The new routes are part of WestJet’s 2019 summer schedule, which includes previously announced nonstop flights to London (Gatwick), Paris and Dublin from Calgary on its Boeing 787-9 Dreamliners.
In all this summer WestJet will operate 750+ daily flights in peak summer to 92 destinations including 42 in Canada, 23 in the United States, 27 in Mexico, the Caribbean and Central America, and 5 in Europe.
