Canadian carrier, WestJet, is adding four new routes to its summer schedule. The new service will connect Edmonton International Airport (YEG) with Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport (ATL), Nashville International Airport (BNA), and San Francisco International Airport (SFO), as well as Vancouver International Airport (YVR) and Detroit Metropolitan Wayne County Airport (DTW).
WestJet will increase its transborder service in Western Canada with up to daily frequency during peak travel periods next summer. Here is the full schedule from Edmonton International Airport (YEG):
- Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport (ATL) (daily; starts on April 29th)
- Nashville International Airport (BNA) (2x weekly; starts on May 2nd) (seasonal)
- San Francisco International Airport (SFO) (5x weekly; starts on June 20th) (seasonal)
Flights between Vancouver International Airport (YVR) and Detroit Metropolitan Wayne County Airport (DTW) will operate daily on a seasonal basis beginning on April 28th.
WestJet has a partnership with Delta Air Lines and the flights to Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport (ATL) and Detroit Metropolitan Wayne County Airport (DTW) will open tons of one-stop destinations for Canadian travelers.
John Weatherill, WestJet Group Executive Vice-President and Chief Commercial Officer, said:
We are thrilled to be expanding transborder connectivity from Edmonton and Vancouver, providing Western Canadians with an abundance of opportunity to fulfill their diverse travel needs. Strong connections fostered between Canada and the United States are essential to WestJet’s growth plan and to the communities we serve as we significantly bolster options for leisure guests, business travel and cargo services.”
Anthony’s Take: I’ll be flying WestJet for the first time next month. The carrier continues to expand its offerings in the US and I love that I can earn Delta miles by flying with them.
