WestJet on January 25 announced that it will move its nonstop seasonal service between Whitehorse and Vancouver to Calgary International Airport (YYC), effective June 29, 2018. For the first time, flights between Whitehorse and Calgary will be available for purchase as of January 29, 2018.

“WestJet has been serving Whitehorse with seasonal summer service to Vancouver since 2012,” said Brian Znotins, WestJet Vice-President, Network Planning, Alliances and Corporate Development. “As we continue to expand our Calgary hub, it makes sense to move the service from Vancouver to Calgary to offer residents of Whitehorse more destinations via YYC Calgary International Airport. This is also an opportunity for residents to fly non-stop to Calgary, and this summer will also see an increase to our seasonal service from three times weekly to four times weekly.”

WestJet offers 31 nonstop routes from Vancouver and 52 nonstop routes from Calgary.

Details of WestJet’s new nonstop seasonal service between Whitehorse and Calgary:

Route Frequency Departing Arriving Effective
Whitehorse – Calgary Four times weekly 6 a.m. 9:32 a.m. June 30, 2018
Calgary – Whitehorse Four times weekly 9:45 p.m. 11:26 p.m. June 29, 2018

The service is part of the airline’s seasonal schedule for the summer of 2018, full details of which will be released January 29, 2018.
