WestJet Adds Another Flight to Vancouver Out of YXS

Prince George, BC – WestJet has released its winter schedule and Northern BC residents can expect to see a few changes out of Prince George.

Starting November 25, 2013, there will two 737s and two Q400s each business day to Vancouver (YVR). This schedule will add more frequency and more seats on the WestJet schedule. WestJet will be adding another return flight to Vancouver on WestJet Encore, using its brand new, made-in-Canada Bombardier Q400 NextGen aircraft. The additional daily service leaves YVR at 5:25pm, arriving in Prince George at 6:50pm; out of Prince George, it leaves at 7:20pm arriving into YVR at 8:36pm.

Prince George Airport Authority President and CEO, John Gibson, says “this additional service means an additional 40 seats per day between Prince George and Vancouver. It also gives travelers more choice in terms of flight times.”

“One of the reasons we launched WestJet Encore, was to provide enhanced service to smaller Canadian communities,” said Robert Palmer, WestJet’s manager of public relations. “Our 78-seat Q400 aircraft afford us the opportunity to add flights and improve schedules because we are able to use a more appropriately-sized aircraft on certain routes at certain times of day. Adding another flight between Prince George and Vancouver is a prime example of what we had always hoped to achieve by launching WestJet Encore.”

Also included in WestJet’s winter schedule is the weekly non-stop flight to Puerto Vallarta, Mexico. The “snow to sand” service runs November 2nd, 2013 to April 26, 2014. Book early as this flight is extremely popular.
