WestJet introduces WestJet Link

Airline Color Scheme - Introduced 1997 (diver)

WestJet on November 24, 2017 introduced WestJet Link, a new regional air service operating under a capacity purchase agreement (CPA) with Pacific Coastal Airlines.

Using Pacific Coastal Airlines’ aircraft painted in WestJet colors, WestJet Link will connect the communities of Lethbridge, Lloydminster, Medicine Hat, Cranbrook and Prince George to WestJet’s rapidly expanding network hub at the Calgary International Airport (YYC). These new routes will add to WestJet’s existing leadership position in Calgary, offering more flights and seats to more destinations than any other airline.

All WestJet Link flights will be operated by Pacific Coastal using its fleet of 34-seat Saab 340B aircraft. Each aircraft will include six seats available in WestJet Plus, offering guests advanced boarding, no-charge for two checked bags and seating at the front of the aircraft.
