WestJet launched its new daily, non-stop service from Toronto to Sudbury last week.
“WestJet welcomes Northern Ontario’s largest city to its expanding network,” said Brian Znotins, WestJet vice-president, Network Planning. “This new service offers residents of Greater Sudbury and the Nickel Belt the opportunity to take advantage of WestJet’s low fares and friendly, caring service, excellent flight times and superb connectivity through Toronto Pearson, our largest hub. It will also enable more business travel between southern and Northern Ontario, driving growth and creating opportunities across the region.”
Effective until May 14, 2017, the carrier’s non-stop service will run once a day. On May 15, 2017, the service will increase to three times daily.
Flights between Toronto and Sudbury will be operated by WestJet Encore. Launched in June 2013, WestJet Encore now operates more than 180 daily departures to a total of 36 destinations across Canada and the U.S. with a fleet of 34 Canadian-made Bombardier Q400 NextGen aircraft. By mid-2018, the regional airline will have a total of 45 aircraft.
