WestJet to launch nonstops between Calgary and Terrace, B.C.

CALGARY — Come September, WestJet will be offering new twice-weekly, nonstop service between Calgary and Terrace, B.C.

The new route, which launches Sept. 4, brings the number of nonstop destinations WestJet services from Calgary to 63, more than any other airline. Operated by WestJet Encore using Bombardier Q400 aircraft, the additional service will benefit the entire northwest region of the province, which the airline says continues to be “economically strong”.

Brian Znotins, WestJet Vice-President Network Planning, Alliances and Corporate Development, said: “Given the critical importance of transportation in creating and supporting economic development, this additional service will benefit the economy and the community as a whole.”

Bob Sartor, President and CEO of The Calgary Airport Authority, added: “With major development projects underway in Western Canada, the addition of WestJet Encore’s Calgary to Terrace route is an important connection as it further supports economic development that will benefit both British Columbians and Albertans.”

WestJet Encore also operates twice-daily service to Vancouver. Both routes provide convenient connections to and from Honolulu, Maui, Kauai and Kona, Las Vegas, Phoenix, Cancun, Puerto Vallarta, Cabo and Mazatlan in addition to connecting to the remainder of WestJet’s domestic, transborder and international network.
