Today (September 14, 2020), WestJet announced an update to their winter 2020/21 schedule with flights to popular sunny holiday destinations starting October 4, 2020. While the carrier’s schedule is significantly reduced compared to 2019, WestJet is resuming nonstop service from Calgary to Palm Springs, Phoenix, Cancun, Puerto Vallarta and Cabo San Lucas as well as from Toronto to Kingston and Montego Bay (Jamaica) and Cancun. Additionally, WestJet is restarting nonstop 787 Dreamliner service between Toronto and London-Gatwick. In total, from October 4th the carrier will offer service to/from 48 destinations including 39 in Canada, three in the U.S., three in Mexico, Two in Jamaica and one in the U.K. In Monday’s announcement, WestJet’s Chief Commercial Officer, Arved von zur Muehlen, said,
“This fall we continue to offer guests stringent safety measures and travel that meets their needs during this extraordinary time. As more people consider flying and as business and economies begin to open up, we are thoughtfully and carefully connecting key markets while ensuring safety throughout the journey.”
As part of WestJet’s comprehensive ‘Safety Above All’ program, the carrier announced last week that eligible guests flying to certain destinations will now be automatically covered by COVID-19 travel insurance for pandemic-related medical and quarantine expenses.
Prior to the Global COVID-19 pandemic, WestJet and subsidiary regional airlines, WestJet Encore and WestJet Link, offered scheduled service to over 110 destinations across North America, Central America, the Caribbean and Europe. WestJet and WestJet Encore continue to connect all 38 of the carrier’s Canadian domestic airports with reduced capacity, ensuring essential cargo and passenger connectivity. During these unprecedented times, the carrier has maintained their rating by Cirium as one of the top ten airlines for on-time performance in North America.
