On Monday (July 24, 2023), WestJet announced their winter 2023/24 schedule with nonstop service on 230 routes from Canada to fun and sun destinations in the southern U.S., Mexico, the Caribbean and Central America. The carrier will also extend key domestic and international routes from summer to year-round service. The schedule will feature four new and four returning routes and will include over 85 daily departures to popular sun destinations from communities across Canada.

In Monday’s schedule announcement, WestJet Group’s EVP and Chief Commercial Officer, John Weatherill, said,

“This year’s winter schedule is about providing Canadians with what they want: affordable sun destination getaways from across Canada; enhanced domestic connectivity from coast-to-coast; and the assurance that some of our most popular routes, previously operated exclusively in the summer, are available year-round.

“As we work towards our eventual airline integration, the complementary winter schedules of both WestJet and Sunwing Airlines demonstrate early signs of a vibrant future for the WestJet Group that will see a significantly expanded footprint in Eastern Canada and bring even more affordable and seamless sun and leisure travel opportunities to Canadians across the country.”

In 27 years of service, WestJet has cut airfares for Canadians in half and increased the flying population around Canada by over 50 percent. The airline launched in 1996 with three aircraft, 250 employees and five destinations, and has now grown to more than 180 aircraft and 14,000 employees, offering service to over 110 destinations in 24 countries.
