TORONTO — The news reports coming in from Grand Bahama and the Abaco Islands are heartbreaking, and the images even more so.
CALGARY — WestJet is heading to Roatán, Honduras for the first time, with new nonstop seasonal service from Toronto starting Dec. 15.
The new once weekly service will operate on WestJet’s Boeing 737 aircraft featuring Premium and Economy cabins. Toronto flights depart at 9:30 a.m., while return flights from Roatán depart at 2:10 p.m.
Arvez von zur Muehlen, WestJet Chief Commercial Officer, welcomed the news, saying: “With the addition of the snorkelling paradise of Roatán to our network, WestJet guests now have convenient access to 14 Caribbean destinations nonstop from Toronto this winter. Roatán is home to miles of coastline featuring barrier reefs, white sand beaches and turquoise waters and is a bucket list getaway that we can’t wait for our guests to explore starting this December.”
Mike Carter, Vice-President, Bay Islands Tourism Bureau, added: “We at the Bay Islands Tourism Bureau are so happy to know WestJet will be servicing Roatán as we love to see our friends from the north visit and look forward to working with the premier Canadian airline. From the beginning of our talks, all the way through the process, the cooperation and communication from all involved has been amazing. A special thanks to our political and business stakeholders and the entire WestJet team as we have the foundation of a great partnership for growth and service.”
