Regarding the launch, Marie Manning, Director of Marketing and Business Development, St John’s International Airport Authority said “The links between Edmonton and St John’s are strong, and this new service that offers a fast and convenient way to connect these two regions has already been well received by the local market.” Tom Ruth, President and CEO Edmonton International Airport added “We couldn’t be happier with this new flight. There is a continuous flow of passengers between St John’s and the Edmonton Metropolitian Region, and we look forward to welcoming travellers…taking advantage of the work and tourism opportunities in both provinces”. According to OAG Schedules, the 4,216 kilometre route is served by WestJet’s 737-700/800 fleet, and is set to operate for the summer season until 26 October.
