Canadian carrier, WestJet, is adding additional flights to its already busy winter schedule. It announced today that frequency was increasing on flights from Calgary International Airport (YYC) to Ottawa Macdonald-Cartier International Airport (YOW) and Los Angeles International Airport (LAX).

WestJet had already announced that it would serve the Calgary International Airport (YYC) to Ottawa Macdonald-Cartier International Airport (YOW) route with seven weekly flights. This jumps to 14x weekly after October 30th.

Los Angeles


Calgary International Airport (YYC) to Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) will also five more flights to hit 21 flights each week after October 30th.

Jane McCurdy, WestJet Director, Network Planning and Alliances, said:

WestJet is unwavering in our commitment to ensure Calgary remains the most connected city in North America with under two million residents, as we continue to provide guests with even more affordable and accessible air travel across our network this winter. With increased demand for these two popular routes from Calgary, we are able to provide enhanced capacity and more seats for our valued guests this winter.”

As I wrote about last month, WestJet is adding new routes, resuming old ones, and adding frequency this winter.

Anthony’s Take: The increased flights illustrate the demand for travel that seems to be undaunted by the change of seasons or the economy. We’ll likely see more additions as the full schedule is planned.

I don’t get it. I just checked for a round-trip flight from Ottawa to Calgary. At present there are 2 non-stops each way plus numerous options with connections at YYZ or YWG; in early November there is only 1 with far fewer 1-stoppers. How is that an increase in service?
