WestJet Encore brings its Bombardier Q400s to the Skeena Valley
WestJet today announced new twice-daily, non-stop service between Vancouver and Terrace, B.C., effective November 25, 2013.
Operated by WestJet Encore using Bombardier Q400 NextGen aircraft, the service will benefit the entire northwest region of the province which is undergoing a major economic transformation due to billions of dollars in investment in forestry, mining, smelting, hydroelectricity, liquefied natural gas and infrastructure projects in the Kitimat-Terrace industrial corridor.
"The growth of natural resource and industrial development in this important region of British Columbia is unprecedented," said Ferio Pugliese, Executive Vice-President, WestJet, and President, WestJet Encore. "And given the critical importance of transportation in creating and supporting economic development, we are pleased to offer greater opportunities for connectivity to the WestJet network with this new, twice-daily service to the Skeena Valley at such a significant time in its history."
"The Terrace-Kitimat Airport Society welcomes WestJet Encore as the newest partner providing service to Northwest British Columbia," said Carman Hendry, Manager of the Northwest Regional Airport Terrace-Kitimat.
