Winnipeg flies from white snow to Snow White



    WestJet launches non-stop service from Winnipeg to Orlando, Florida

    CALGARY, Jan. 12 /CNW/ - WestJet today announced the launch of a
limited-time non-stop route between Winnipeg and Orlando, Florida, beginning
February 4, 2009.
    "Winnipeg has been loyal to WestJet, so when we saw the opportunity to
introduce weekly flights to Orlando, we jumped on it," said Bob Cummings,
WestJet Executive Vice-President of Guest Experience and Marketing. "I hope
Winnipeggers take advantage of this limited-time service to escape the winter
blues, enjoy a well-deserved spring break and take the family to Walt Disney
World."
    With the addition of this new route, WestJet becomes the only carrier in
Canada to fly non-stop service between Winnipeg and Orlando. The launch of the
new route also marks WestJet's first ever scheduled non-stop service from
Winnipeg to Florida.
    Having recently added non-stop flights to the Mexican hot spots of Puerto
Vallarta and Mazatlan, WestJet is fast becoming the airline of choice for
Winnipeggers travelling to sun destinations.

    
    Following are the schedule details of WestJet's new service.
