WestJet to launch new daily service between Toronto and Phoenix Oct. 26

CALGARY — WestJet will launch a new daily, nonstop service between Toronto and Phoenix beginning Oct. 26, 2014.

Same-day connections are also available to and from Montreal, Ottawa, Halifax and Moncton.

“We are always looking for new and better ways to provide Canadians with in-demand destination choices,” said Chris Avery, WestJet’s Vice-President, Network Planning, Alliances and Corporate Development. “After this winter of record storms and low temperatures, more Canadians than ever are looking for nonstop routes to sunny U.S. destinations like Phoenix to meet the demand for sunshine and tee times.”

Details of WestJet’s new daily, nonstop seasonal service between Toronto and Phoenix are: leaving Toronto at 9:45 a.m. arriving in Phoenix at 11:35 a.m. with the return flight departing Phoenix at 12:20 p.m. arriving in Toronto at 7:27 p.m.

More than half a million Canadians visit Arizona every year, and almost half of those visitors are from Ontario. WestJet’s newest seasonal route is expected to run from the end of October through to April 25, 2015. The Phoenix Sky Harbour International Airport is one of largest hubs for WestJet partner American Airlines, with access to more than 300 flights daily.
