WestJet has begun flying a new route between Calgary and Huatulco, which has become the airline’s tenth destination in Mexico, and is set to start a new non-stop service from Calgary to Liberia, Costa Rica, on December 19.
The Calgary–Huatulco flights are twice weekly, taking off at 08:25 and landing at 15:07. The return service leaves Huatulco at 16:00 to arrive back in Calgary at 21:01.
WestJet’s Liberia–Calgary service will operate four times weekly, leaving at 08:00 and arriving back in Calgary at 14:28, whilst the Calgary–Liberia leg will depart at 22:55 and land at 06:39 (+1).
With these new services, WestJet will operate 109 daily departures to 47 destinations from Calgary International Airport this winter, an increase of 12 and 17% respectively over last winter. The airline now offers non-stop service from Calgary to 26 Canadian, 10 US and 11 international destinations.
“Calgary remains WestJet's home and a major hub, offering Canadians non-stop service to nearly half of its expanding domestic, transborder and international networks,” remarked John Weatherill, WestJet’s director of network and schedule planning. “New non-stop flights to Huatulco and Liberia increase the choices for travellers looking for low fares, high value and our remarkable guest experience and caring, people-driven service.”
WestJet's 2015 winter schedule also contains a number of new non-stop routes including Vancouver, Kitchener-Waterloo and Charlottetown to Orlando; Calgary to Fort Lauderdale and Liberia, Costa Rica; and Toronto and Halifax to Boston.
