News, Tips & Tricks
Despite the weakness of our Loonie, WestJet is expanding their service to the U.S.. The route of note is a new city for WestJet, Nashville, Tennessee! The country music city will be served 5x a week from Toronto via WestJet Encore on their Q400s. The other expansions are Vancouver to San Diego 3x per week and the return of a daily service between Toronto and Los Angeles. Also included in the update is the addition of a Calgary to Thunder Bay route! (Source WestJet)

which is based out of Xiamen China will be lauching 3x weekly service between Vancouver and Xiamen. The airline is a SkyTeam alliance member which means you can use programs like Delta SkyMiles, Air France KLM Flying Blue etc. to earn and redeem on their flights. XiamenAir also has their own FFP called Egret Club. The flights will start this July with a Boeing 787-8 aircraft. (Source

and the last good news of the day which you would have seen on the blog earlier today was the release of IHG's PointBreaks. Yes there weren't many Canadian locations but still a great hotel points redemption option!
