WestJet kicks off Travel Agent Appreciation Month

WestJet moves Whitehorse service to Calgary

CALGARY — WestJet will be moving its nonstop seasonal service between Whitehorse and Vancouver to Calgary International Airport (YYC), effective June 29, 2018.

For the first time, flights between Whitehorse and Calgary will be available for purchase starting Jan. 29, 2018.

“WestJet has been serving Whitehorse with seasonal summer service to Vancouver since 2012,” said Brian Znotins, WestJet Vice-President, Network Planning, Alliances and Corporate Development. “As we continue to expand our Calgary hub, it makes sense to move the service from Vancouver to Calgary to offer residents of Whitehorse more destinations via YYC Calgary International Airport. This is also an opportunity for residents to fly non-stop to Calgary, and this summer will also see an increase to our seasonal service from three times weekly to four times weekly.”

Whitehorse-Calgary departs four times weekly at 6 a.m., arriving at 9:32 a.m. Calgary-Whitehorse departs four times weekly at 9:45 p.m., arriving at 11:26 p.m.

The service is part of the airline’s seasonal summer schedule.
