WestJet on Wednesday unveiled its winter schedule for 2010-2011 that includes three new destinations, 10 new routes and expanded service on more than 30 others.

Beginning in November, WestJet will launch seasonal, non-stop service to New Orleans, Santa Clara in Cuba and Grand Cayman Island, all from Toronto’s Pearson International Airport.

WestJet will also launch new seasonal, non-stop service between Vancouver, Calgary, Edmonton, Winnipeg, Saskatoon, Regina, Montreal and Montego Bay, Jamaica; and between Montreal, Calgary and Varadero, Cuba; and also between Toronto and Palm Springs.

WestJet will extend its non-stop service from seasonal to year-round between Ottawa and Halifax, Ottawa and Vancouver, Toronto and Bermuda, Toronto and Samana, DR, Toronto and Puerto Vallarta and between Montreal and Punta Cana.

WestJet will increase the number of seasonal, non-stop flights this winter from Vancouver, Calgary, Edmonton, Saskatoon, Regina, Winnipeg, Toronto, Ottawa and Montreal to exciting destinations such as Honolulu, Maui, Cancun, Puerto Vallarta and Cabo San Lucas.

“This winter schedule is a measured, balanced and strategic approach to domestic, trans-border and international growth,” said Hugh Dunleavy, Executive Vice-President, Strategy and Planning.

“Along with our high-value frequent guest program we launched in March, additional service to and from Ottawa expands upon our growing business travel offering. And, the introduction of new southern destinations from more Canadian gateways offers our guests more choices for their winter vacations.”
