WestJet announced today they are adding four new non-stop routes, two new year-round routes and increased frequency on 29 existing routes as part of the 2013-2014 winter schedule.

Domestic routes now benefit from enhanced frequency in addition to several popular sun destinations, including Manzanillo andIxtapa, Mexico, Providenciales, Turks and Caicos, Varadero, Cuba and Hewanorra, St. Lucia.

“Our newest schedule reflects the popularity of many domestic and international destinations and the demand for more frequency,” said Chris Avery, WestJet Vice-President, Network Planning, Alliances and Corporate Development. “With the continued expansion and growth of WestJet Encore, we have been able to increase our domestic frequency on existing routes while adding more flights to our most popular trans-border and international destinations.  Our guests are voting with their feet and booking these destinations with greater consistency, so we intend to give them as many options as we can when it comes to flying with WestJet.”
