WestJet will be flying to 45 destinations, primarily in Canada but also in the United States and Mexico, this July.
The updated July schedule reflects the carrier’s commitment to economically supporting communities across Canada in safety reopening travel and domestic tourism. The airline will maintain its stringent Safety Above All hygiene program and continue to provide flexibility in booking, change and cancellation policies.
Today’s schedule reflects our commitment to orderly and safe travel while providing steps to allow Canadians to get out, explore, and take part in critical economic activities like staying in hotels, eating out, visiting tourist attractions or simply just travelling to see friends and family,” said Arved von zur Muehlen, chief commercial officer, WestJet. “Governments and Canadians from coast-to-coast are working together to lessen the impact of this pandemic and we are grateful that these efforts have put us in a position to add more options for travel this July.
While the just-released July schedule is an increase of 102 percent over flights offered in June, it is a 76 percent decrease from July 2019.
“As we emerge from the pandemic, health vigilance must be balanced with the gradual reopening of our economy,” explains von zur Muehlen. “WestJet has done our part and spent millions of dollars to ensure the safety and well-being of our guests and our people. We’re ready to get Canadian flying.”
On March 22, WestJet suspended its international and transborder operations. The airline’s schedule now contains flights to key transborder and international destinations including Los Angeles (LAX), Atlanta (ATL) and Las Vegas (LAS) as well as New York City (LaGuardia), Orlando, Florida and Cancun, Mexico.
