WestJet increases service to Orlando

Canada's low-fare leader adds second weekly flight to popular destination

CALGARY, Oct. 20, 2015 /CNW/ - WestJet announced it will add a second weekly flight between Vancouver and Orlando, effective January 2016. This is in addition to the new weekly service to Orlando announced earlier this year.

"With the addition of a second weekly flight to Orlando, we continue to provide additional non-stop and connecting options for British Columbians looking for affordable, flexible-length getaways to Walt Disney World and a host of other spectacular attractions," said Chris Avery, WestJet Vice-President, Network Planning, Alliances and Corporate Planning. "Once at Orlando International Airport, most theme parks and other major venues are only a short bus ride away, making it convenient for families to take in everything the area has to offer."
