WestJet adds flights on Thursdays and Sundays to Sin City
CALGARY, April 28, 2015 /CNW/ - WestJet today announced new non-stop, twice-weekly service between Abbotsford,
BC and Las Vegas, set to launch October 29, 2015.
The Abbotsford International Airport recently eliminated several fees,
including the airport improvement fee, creating a cost-friendly
environment for WestJet to grow service from the Fraser Valley.
"Abbotsford and WestJet have been partners since 1997, and we see the
recently announced fee drops at the airport as an opportunity to
further build service in the area," said Gregg Saretsky, WestJet
President and CEO. "We need more airport authorities across Canada to
think like Abbotsford."
"We are committed to continually improving options for guests flying out
of Abbotsford, just as they have committed to supporting our airline
for the last 17 years. We are betting on the success of this route as
part of our winter 2015-2016 schedule, and we are proud to offer an
ultra-low fare in celebration of the announcement."
Guests seeking flights to the bright lights of the Las Vegas strip need
look no further than their own backyard. Enhanced service from
Abbotsford provides a convenient schedule to business and leisure
travellers alike. Visit westjet.com for more information.
