WestJet announces summer flight schedule - 102% increase in flights including the return of select U.S. and Mexico routes

WestJet announced their summer flight schedule yesterday which will see the airline more than double the number of flights they are currently operating. Even with that doubling they will only be flying about a quarter of their schedule that was seen in July 2019. The summer flights include the resumption of some flights to the U.S. and Mexico while in Canada WestJet will be flying to 39 cities in total. The summer schedule takes effect on July 5 and published frequencies will be valid until August 4.

On the U.S. side flights to Las Vegas will be operated from Calgary, Toronto, and Vancouver, Los Angeles from Calgary and Vancouver while Atlanta will see flights from Calgary and finally there will also be flights to New York La Guardia and Orlando from Toronto. The one Mexico flight will be a weekly rotation between Toronto and Cancun which starts up on July 11.

Even though WestJet has released these details and published the schedule they are subject to change based on demand and governmental requirements (ie quarantines, travel bans etc.)
