New Brunswickers hoping to travel to Alberta this summer now have a few more options for flights out of the Greater Moncton Roméo LeBlanc International Airport.
The airport authority announced Monday that WestJet will launch two new non-stop flights to Calgary and Edmonton beginning in June.
“Our team is very excited to see WestJet launch these new routes direct to Calgary and Edmonton from YQM,” said Courtney Burns, president and CEO of the Greater Moncton Airport.
“We know there is strong demand for both of these routes, strategically expanding YQM’s list of destinations beyond regional service with direct East-West connectivity.”
Airport officials say WestJet will offer three non-stop flights per week to Calgary beginning on June 14. Additionally, two non-stop flights per week to Edmonton will begin on June 29.
It’s all part of WestJet’s recent route expansion for western Canada and the United States.
The airline will also add non-stop flights to both destinations through Canadian airports in Montreal, Quebec City, Thunder Bay, Charlottetown, London, Ont. and Ottawa.
