WestJet Encore reaches unique agreement with cabin crew members

WestJet adds summer nonstops on Brandon-Toronto route and YVR to Hamilton, London

CALGARY — New seasonal service with WestJet this summer includes nonstop flights between Brandon, MB and Toronto, and nonstop flights between Vancouver and both Hamilton and London, ON.

“These new flights provide our guests in Brandon, London and Hamilton even more access to the WestJet network with nonstop service, greater convenience and more connectivity this summer,” said John Weatherill, Director, Network and Schedule Planning.

From June 28 to Sept. 5 WestJet will offer four weekly, nonstop flights between Brandon and Toronto. Flights arrive in Brandon in the evening and depart in the morning. The new service opens up 13 new WestJet destinations and 20 new codeshare destinations via Toronto Pearson to Eastern Canada, the U.S., Caribbean, Mexico and Europe.

From June 29 to Sept. 5 WestJet will also offer four weekly, nonstop flights between London, Ontario and Vancouver. And from June 30 to Sept. 4 WestJet will offer three-time weekly, nonstop service between Hamilton, Ontario and Vancouver.

As previously reported WestJet is moving capacity off underperforming Western routes. “We are keeping our capacity plans fluid for 2016 and will continue to adjust our schedules and stimulate demand to optimize our results,” said Weatherill. “Based on guests’ response during this summer, we will determine if these three routes are viable options for the future.”
