WestJet guests in Saskatoon will have a new route taking them to the sun this winter. Starting December 7, 2018, WestJet will begin weekly, non-stop service between Skyxe Saskatoon Airport and Orlando International Airport.
In addition to the new route, WestJet also announced service between Saskatoon and Calgary will increase from six daily flights to eight daily flights each business day.
“Our guests in Saskatoon are valuable to WestJet and we appreciate the ongoing support from the community,” said Tim Croyle, WestJet Interim Executive Vice-President, Commercial. “This flight to Orlando is sure to entice guests to head south for some sun all while enjoying convenient non-stop access along with WestJet’s award-winning guest experience on the way. We look forward to flying Saskatonians to Orlando during those cold winter days.”
The new service is part of WestJet’s seasonal schedule for winter 2018/2019 which also includes a new non-stop, twice weekly flight from Calgary to Montego Bay, Jamaica and additional flights from WestJet hubs to domestic, transborder, international and sun destinations including Maui, Phoenix, Las Vegas, Orlando, Huatulco, Puerto Vallarta and Belize among others.
“Skyxe looks forward to welcoming weekly nonstop WestJet service to Orlando,” said Stephen Maybury, President & CEO, Skyxe Saskatoon Airport. “WestJet is a valued air service partner which provides our guests with an extensive domestic network augmented with a variety of nonstop winter destinations.”
“Orlando International Airport is excited about welcoming new visitors from our neighbour to the north,” said Phil Brown, Greater Orlando Aviation Authority CEO. “Adding a new non-stop destination from Canada, one of our largest international markets, increases our ability to share Florida’s warm hospitality and provides us with more opportunities to introduce travellers to The Orlando Experience.”
