There is some good news for those looking to travel out west this summer. WestJet has added a new direct seasonal flight.
WestJet announced Monday a new direct flight between Edmonton and St. John’s as a highlight to its 2019 summer schedule. The three-time weekly service will begin on June 25th.
Edmonton International Airport president Tom Ruth says there are strong family and business ties between Alberta and Newfoundland, so it’s sure to be a popular flight.
“We continue to make investments to ensure the best connectivity for our guests across our network and we remain committed to growing aviation in the province of Newfoundland and Labrador,” said Arved von zur Muehlen, WestJet’s Chief Commercial Officer. “Edmonton is an important destination for the east coast and these flights demonstrate our commitment to connecting more guests across our network.”
