WestJet Launches New Year-Round Service Between Regina and Minneapolis for Summer 2024
For summer 2024, WestJet is launching new year-round service between Regina and Minneapolis, marking Regina’s first new year-round transborder route since 2016. The route will operate daily starting April 28, 2024.
On Monday (November 20, 2023), WestJet announced the launch of new, daily, year-round service between Regina and Minneapolis-St. Paul starting April 28, 2024. This marks the first new year-round transborder route from Regina since 2016. Inbound guests to Minneapolis will also enjoy seamless one-stop onward connectivity to over 70 destinations with WestJet’s codeshare partner, Delta Air Lines. With the codeshare, customers can access Delta’s broad network on a single ticket, check-in for all flights on the first departure, baggage tagged to their final destination, and select guests will also enjoy lounge access.
In Monday’s announcement, WestJet’s Director of Alliances & Airport Affairs, Jared Mikoch-Gerke, said,
“We are thrilled to answer the call of the community and further our commitment to Regina and surrounding area by bringing vital year-round transborder connectivity with service to Minneapolis, beginning this summer. Our newest investment in Regina will further support the economic growth of the region and unlock business and leisure travel opportunities, as we accelerate providing affordable travel to our guests.”
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 100 destinations in 26 countries.
