WestJet introduces WestJet Link, a new regional air service operating under a capacity purchase agreement (CPA) with Pacific Coastal Airlines, with nonstop daily service to Calgary starting March 21, 2018 using its fleet of 34-seat Saab 340B aircraft.
“We are very excited to have non-stop service between Prince George and Calgary again with service provided by WestJet and Pacific Coastal Airlines, both Prince George Airport partners,” said John Gibson, President and CEO of the Prince George Airport Authority. “Calgary is the number one unserved market requested by the greater Prince George community.”

Operated with ‘Pacific Coastal Airlines’ aircraft painted in WestJet colours, WestJet Link will connect the communities of Prince George, Lethbridge, Medicine Hat, Cranbrook and Lloydminster to WestJet’s rapidly expanding network hub at the YYC Calgary International Airport.
Each aircraft will offer flight attendant service, comfortable leather seating in economy, and include six seats available in WestJet’s Plus fare. Guests onboard will enjoy WestJet amenities and benefits including earning and redeeming WestJet dollars.
“A CPA with Pacific Coastal underscores WestJet’s commitment to offering more Canadians access to WestJet’s low fares and growing network,” said Ed Sims, WestJet Executive Vice-President, Commercial. “WestJet Link will be that connection to these communities and will offer more choice and more competition for air travellers, as well as more opportunities to earn and use WestJet Rewards.”

“All of us at Pacific Coastal Airlines are excited and proud to be entering this relationship with WestJet,” said Quentin Smith, President, Pacific Coastal Airlines. “Our two airlines, both based in Western Canada, share many similar corporate and guest service values and we feel that this CPA is a perfect partnership to link many new communities to the WestJet network.”

“This new partnership between WestJet and Pacific Coastal will allow smaller communities within Alberta and British Columbia to take advantage of YYC’s extensive route network,” said Bob Sartor, President and CEO for The Calgary Airport Authority. “Bringing in new passengers from these communities provides more opportunities to support additional long-haul destinations and contributes greatly to WestJet’s growth strategy out of YYC.”
