WestJet Update: 29 April – Domestic Schedule Changes to June 4

From WestJet

WESTJET MAKES FREQUENCY UPDATES TO ITS DOMESTIC FLIGHT SCHEDULE FROM MAY 5 THROUGH JUNE 4  

WestJet is making additional changes to its domestic flight schedule, from May 5 through June 4, 2020. These changes are required to address significantly reduced guest demand during the COVID-19 crisis.   

The following are frequency reductions from May 5-June 4, 2020:  

Market  Previous frequency  Updated frequency 
Calgary-Lethbridge 6x weekly 3x weekly 
Calgary-Medicine Hat 6x weekly 3x weekly 
Calgary-Cranbrook 6x weekly 3x weekly 
Winnipeg-Saskatoon 3x weekly 2x weekly 
Winnipeg-Thunder Bay 3x weekly 2x weekly 

The following city pairs have been temporarily removed from May 5-June 4, 2020:  

Market Previous frequency 
Halifax-Montreal 1x weekly 

These changes are in addition to the network updates announced on Monday, April 22, when the airline announced removing approximately 4,000 weekly flights or 600 daily flights. 

While some city pairings have been temporarily removed, we continue to serve the 38 Canadian airports to which we currently operate, ensuring that those with essential travel requirements can get where they need to be and that cargo goods like blood, medical products and food supplies can continue to flow.   

The overall demand for travel remains fluid during this ongoing pandemic and we continue to evaluate further reductions. Bookings and full schedule details are available at westjet.com. All transborder and international routes remain suspended at this time through June 4, 2020.
