WestJet is doubling its schedule of weekly flights between St. John’s and Orlando, effective January 2016.
“With the addition of a second weekly flight from St. John’s, WestJet now offers Atlantic Canadians eight non-stop flights each week from St. John’s, Charlottetown, Halifax and Moncton, giving travellers many options for affordable, flexible-length stays in Central Florida,” said Chris Avery, WestJet vice-president, Network Planning, Alliances and Corporate Planning.
Serving St. John’s since 2003, WestJet operates nearly 30 flights per week from St. John’s International Airport during the winter months. Non-stop service between St. John’s and Dublin, Ireland, launched in 2014, was WestJet’s first transatlantic service.
WestJet serves Orlando with a total of 43 flights per week during peak winter months from Vancouver, Calgary, Edmonton, Winnipeg, London, Kitchener-Waterloo, Hamilton, Toronto, Ottawa, Montreal, Halifax, Moncton, Charlottetown and St. John’s.
