WestJet is to launch daily non-stop service between Chicago and Vancouver and between Chicago and Calgary from 14 May 2012.
While WestJet will fly these routes with its own Boeing 737s, the airline will continue to market non-stop service from Chicago to Toronto, Ottawa and Montreal on its partner American Airlines’ codeshare flights.
“We’re pleased to introduce service to and from Chicago,” said John MacLeod, WestJet vice-president, network management and alliances. “The addition of Chicago shows how our continued growth and codeshare agreements are working together to provide guests with non-stop service from the east and west. We believe this balance appeals to both business and leisure travellers looking to experience what Chicago has to offer, as well as for northbound travellers looking to visit Banff and the Rocky Mountains via Calgary or board cruise ships from Vancouver. We look forward to welcoming new and returning guests on board these exciting new services.”
