WestJet has inaugurated new non-stop daily service between Kelowna and Fort McMurray and between Vancouver and Fort McMurray, both services being by WestJet Encore with its Bombardier Q400s.
WestJet Encore has also begun operating a third daily rotation on its Calgary–Fort McMurray service.
“These new services represent unprecedented opportunities for our guests to access Fort McMurray and the energy sector that is so integral to the local, provincial and national economy,” remarked John Weatherill, WestJet’s director, network and schedule planning. “It will now be less expensive and faster than ever before for workers to commute from the Okanagan Valley, Vancouver, Calgary and beyond. For example, business travellers will now be able to fly between Calgary and Fort McMurray and return the same day, making WestJet an even more attractive option for those travelling for work.”
