The Canadian airline WestJet has announced the launch of a new WestJet Link service, that will connect smaller airports with WestJet’s hub at the Calgary International Airport. WestJet Link will offer flights from Calgary to Lethbridge, Medicine Hat, Cranbrook, Lloydminster and Prince George.
All WestJet Link flights will be operated by Pacific Coastal using its fleet of 34-seat Saab 340B aircraft. Each aircraft will include six seats available for WestJet Plus passengers, offering guests advanced boarding, no-charge for two checked bags and seating at the front of the aircraft.
Ed Sims, WestJet Executive Vice-President, Commercial said: "A CPA with Pacific Coastal underscores WestJet's commitment to offering more Canadians access to WestJet's low fares and growing network. WestJet Link will be that connection to these communities and will offer more choice and more competition for air travelers, as well as more opportunities to earn and use WestJet Rewards."

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."
