From 28 July 2016, WestJet will begin a seasonal service between Winnipeg and Kelowna, before commencing another new seasonal route between Edmonton and Hamilton on 29 July 2016.
The Winnipeg–Kelowna route will operate three times weekly until 6 September 2016, while the Edmonton–Hamilton flights will take place four times weekly until 5 September 2016. Both services will be operated using WestJet's Boeing 737 aircraft.
“These are cities we presently serve yet don't connect with non-stop flying,” explained Bob Cummings, EVP commercial, WestJet. “These routes have been on our radar for a while now and with the busy summer flying season upon us, we examined our fleet plans to see if there was extra flying we could provide. Our passengers can expect WestJet's low fares on these routes.”
WestJet has also enhanced schedules between Vancouver and Winnipeg and between Edmonton and Vancouver. From 28 July 2016 until 6 September 2016, Vancouver–Winnipeg flights will operate 24 times weekly, while Edmonton–Vancouver will operate 54 times weekly.
