Be careful where you sit! On 3 May, Gander Airport celebrated the arrival of WestJet’s daily flights from Toronto Pearson, a sector served by a mixed fleet of the LCC’s 737-700s and 737-600s. Celebrations were marked by Commander Gander.
- WestJet expanded its domestic network with the introduction of two new routes on 3 May, both of which are operated daily by a mixed fleet of its 136-seat 737-700s and 119-seat 737-600s. The Canadian LCC started services on the 1,263-kilometre route from Calgary (YYC) to Yellowknife (YZF), an airport pair already flown by Air Canada with twice-daily departures. In addition, WestJet added services between Toronto Pearson (YYZ) and Gander (YQX). The airline will face no competition on the service to the Canadian town located in the north-eastern part of the island of Newfoundland.
