WestJet will again operate flights to Phoenix-Mesa Gateway Airport from Alberta this fall. After a successful inaugural season, twice-weekly nonstop flights from Calgary begin November 9 and a weekly flight from Edmonton begins November 11.
“The Phoenix East Valley has proven to be a popular market for Canadian air travellers. The new Gateway Airport service complements our existing schedule at Phoenix Sky Harbor and provides air travellers with exceptional connectivity between the entire Valley and many Canadian markets,” said Brian Znotins, WestJet vice-president Network Planning, Alliances and Corporate Development. “We are pleased to be returning to Gateway Airport in November and look forward to another successful winter season.”
“Our continued partnership with WestJet is great news for Gateway Airport and the East Valley,” said Mesa Mayor John Giles, chairman of the Phoenix-Mesa Gateway Airport Authority. “Recent air service announcements and major investments by companies like Apple and Intel are key indicators of a healthy and growing regional economy.”
