WestJet adds 11 new destinations and expands winter schedule

Only one of the new 11 destinations will be served directly from YYC but we will also see an extension of another and increases in flights this winter on three more routes.

The new route from Calgary is to Ixtapa/Zihuatnejo which starts on Nov 3 with twice weekly service.

San Diego must be showing some decent numbers as WestJet has extended the service from summer only to year round starting on Nov 2. Flights will remain at three per week

The following routes will see increases:
Calgary-Cancun increased by 1 to 3 times weekly
Calgary-Phoenix increased by 3 to 10 times weekly
Calgary-Puerto Vallarta by 1 to 3 times weekly

From the WestJet press release, the new destinations are
Varadero, Holguin and Cayo Coco, Cuba; Ixtapa and Cozumel, Mexico; St. Martin; Providenciales, Turks and Caicos; Freeport, Bahamas; Lihue (Kauai), Hawaii; Miami, Florida; and Atlantic City, New Jersey. (I just might have to make use of Lihue this winter.)
