CALGARY — WestJet has released the details of its 2020 fall schedule, days after announcing its new free COVID-19 insurance coverage with partner TuGo.
Starting Oct. 4 WestJet will operate flights to 48 destinations including 39 in Canada, three in the U.S. and three in Mexico, two in Jamaica and one in the UK.

“As more people consider flying and as business and economies begin to open up, we are thoughtfully and carefully connecting key markets while ensuring safety throughout the journey.”
On Sept. 11 WestJet announced that through its new partner TuGo, for reservations made on or after Sept. 18, 2020, any WestJet air-only reservation including WestJet Vacations bookings for travel to and from Mexico, the Caribbean, Europe and the UK, and inbound to Canada, will provide eligible passengers no-charge COVID-19 travel insurance.
WestJet’s U.S. destinations for the upcoming season, which are not eligible for the new no-charge insurance, include Palm Springs and Phoenix, both nonstop from Calgary. Other nonstop flights from Calgary include Cancun, Puerto Vallarta and Cabo San Lucas.
WestJet is also bringing back nonstop service between Toronto and Kingston and Montego Bay, Jamaica and Cancun. The airline is also reintroducing non-stop Dreamliner service from Toronto to London (Gatwick).
