  • WestJet WestJet today inaugurated new non-stop daily service between Kelowna, B.C., and Fort McMurray and between Vancouver and Fort McMurray. Both services are offered by WestJet Encore using its fleet of Canadian-made Bombardier Q400 NextGen aircraft.

    Today, WestJet also launched a third daily flight between Calgary and Fort McMurray using the same type of aircraft.

    "These new services represent unprecedented opportunities for our guests to access Fort McMurray and the energy sector that is so integral to the local, provincial and national economy," said John Weatherill, WestJet's Director, Network and Schedule Planning. "It will now be less expensive and faster than ever before for workers to commute from the Okanagan Valley, Vancouver, Calgary and beyond. For example, business travellers will now be able to fly between Calgary and Fort McMurray and return the same day, making WestJet an even more attractive option for those travelling for work."

    John Weatherill also noted that the new service to Kelowna, in particular, also greatly improves tourism opportunities for the entire Okanagan Valley. "We know the connection for commuters is a strong one," he said, "but this new service will also benefit tourism in the valley. We hope to see residents of Northern Alberta take advantage of the many beautiful attractions and vacation opportunities throughout the Okanagan."
