WestJet launches new service between Montreal and Las Vegas

Airline makes inaugural flight between Montreal and Las Vegas today

CALGARY, Dec. 17 /CNW/ - WestJet today announced the launch of new, non-stop service between Montreal and Las Vegas. The inaugural flight departs Montreal's Pierre Elliott Trudeau International Airport at 9:45 a.m. ET today.

"Las Vegas is possibly the most popular city in WestJet's destination lineup," said Hugh Dunleavy, WestJet Executive Vice-President of Strategy and Planning. "We knew it was vital that we offer service from another of our Canadian gateways so that even more WestJet guests can travel to this dynamic and exceptional city. It's even more exciting now that we can offer this route to our friends in Quebec on a year-round basis."

WestJet will fly between Montreal and Las Vegas five times per week.
