- WestJet has added a number of new ‘winter sun’ routes to its network during the last week. The Canadian LCC has added Huatulco (HUX) in Mexico to its network with the introduction of twice-weekly flights from both Calgary (YYC) and Toronto Pearson (YYZ). The other two new routes are from Kitchener (YKF) to Orlando (MCO), and from Toronto to Palm Beach (PBI). WestJet now serves Orlando from 12 Canadian airports, while Palm Beach in Florida is a new destination for the airline. Competition exists on three of the four new routes, none of which are operated more than twice-weekly.
