WestJet to temporarily suspend service to four domestic stations

WestJet announced today it will temporarily suspend operations to St. John’s, N.L., London, Ontario, and Lloydminster and Medicine Hat, Alberta, as of March 19, until June 24, 2021.

With today’s announcement, flights between St. John’s and Halifax will be suspended as of March 21, while service between London, Ontario, and Toronto will cease on March 22. WestJet Link service from Calgary to Lloydminster will end on March 19, and Calgary to Medicine Hat discontinued as of March 21.

In June 2020, WestJet announced organizational changes through its airport transformation program. As a result of the suspensions, WestJet will be working with newly established third-party service providers in St. John’s and London, Ont., and directly with Pacific Coastal Airlines for affected WestJet Link operations in Lloydminster and Medicine Hat.

WestJet continues to operate at more than a 90 percent reduction year over year. Guests impacted will be contacted directly regarding their options for travel to and from the regions. Service is set to resume to all communities as of June 24, 2021.
