WestJet, in the shape of its regional subsidiary WestJet Encore, has begun a new, non-stop service between Edmonton and Kamloops, British Columbia, using Bombardier Q400 NextGen aircraft.
"This is a prime example of the strategic advantage of WestJet Encore," declared Ferio Pugliese, executive vice-president, WestJet, and president, WestJet Encore. "One of the original purposes of our regional airline was to enhance frequencies in smaller Canadian communities which, until WestJet Encore came along, were challenged by the capacity of our 737s. We are very pleased to offer service between Edmonton and Kamloops on our Q400s and look forward to welcoming both business and leisure travellers on board."
The daily service sees flights leave Edmonton at 15:30 with arrival in Kamloops at 15:58. In the opposite direction, pushback from Kamloops is at 16:30, landing in Edmonton at 18:46 (all times local).
