Canadian carrier, WestJet, is adding some new sunny destinations to its winter schedule and resuming a few more. New flights include Tampa, Montego Bay, Bonaire, and Huatulco. WestJet’s winter schedule will offer more than 85 daily departures to warm weather locales from cities across Canada.


The new flights include service between:

  • Calgary International Airport (YYC) and Tampa International Airport (TPA) (Saturday; starts on December 23rd)
  • Edmonton International Airport (YEG) and Montego Bay Sangster International Airport (MBJ) (Sunday; starts on November 12th)
  • Toronto Pearson International Airport (YYZ) and Bonaire International Airport (BON) (Tuesday; starts on December 12th)
  • Winnipeg James Armstrong Richardson International Airport (YWG) and Bahias De Huatulco International Airport (HUX) (Sunday; starts on December 24th)


Returning flights include service between:

  • Victoria International Airport (YYJ) and Los Cabos International Airport (SJD) (Thursday; starts on November 9th)
  • Edmonton International Airport (YEG) and Abbotsford International Airport (YXX) (Sunday, Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, Friday; starts on October 29th)

John Weatherill, WestJet Group, Executive Vice-President and Chief Commercial Officer, commented:

This year’s winter schedule is about providing Canadians with what they want: affordable sun destination getaways from across Canada; enhanced domestic connectivity from coast-to-coast; and the assurance that some of our most popular routes, previously operated exclusively in the summer, are available year-round.”

Anthony’s Take: Flights in and out of Canada are often very expensive. Price pressure from WestJet should help keep them in check and also add new routes for Canadians looking to head for some beach time this winter.
