WestJet Summer Schedule released – includes new Calgary to Nashville route

WestJet released their summer flight schedule today with lots of additional frequencies on their popular routes but possibly the biggest surprise is a new twice weekly route between Calgary and Nashville. Yes they are both country music hubs so there is similarity there but it still is a bit of a surprise. Our guess is that enough Western Canadians were connecting to the WestJet Toronto-Nashville flight to warrant this new direct flight.

Highlights of WestJet’s 2017 summer schedule include:

  • New non-stop twice-weekly service from Calgary to Nashville, Tennessee
  • New non-stop daily service from Halifax to Gander, Newfoundland
  • Additional flights from Toronto to a number of Canadian and international destinations including Orlando, Los Angeles, Las Vegas, Montreal and Moncton.
  • An increase of four new weekly flights between Vancouver and Hamilton, as well as the addition of a daily flight to San Francisco.
  • Service from Calgary will increase with six additional weekly flights to Toronto, and the addition of a once-daily flight to both Winnipeg and Regina.
  • Service from Edmonton to Kelowna will increase by 12 weekly flights and by one additional weekly flight to Las Vegas.
  • Service from Kelowna to Winnipeg will increase by one weekly flight for a total of four times weekly.
  • Extension of existing winter service increases through the summer, including six daily flights between Vancouver and Kelowna, and five daily flights from Vancouver to Prince George.
