West Jet expands route options again; North Coast still not listed on the destinations board

WestJet has revealed some new flight
options for Vancouver island ...
While  Prince Rupert has yet to make
it to the destinations listings for the airline
WestJet has rolled out a number of new routes for the fall and winter, and among the new flight options will be some increased connections for a pair of Vancouver island communities starting December 14th.

Nanaimo and Comox, which are already established routes for WestJet will see their service expanded with an additional daily flight to compliment the existing service options.

However, for those in Prince Rupert hoping for a few more options out of YPR, the wait will continue on for the foreseeable future, with the North Coast once again in a WestJet holding pattern, left off the list of new service destinations for the growing Canadian airline.

Those that find the WestJet experience to their liking will have to continue to make the trip to Terrace to access the airline, WestJet offers a pair of flights out of the Terrace-Kitimat airport, a service that has become a popular option for travellers on the North Coast.

The Prince Rupert airport has in the past been seeking additional flight service out of Digby Island, but to this point Air Canada's daily service remains the only flight option out of the city.

The latest announcement from the airline also included the introduction of new destinations out of Vancouver, with Mexico City now set to be part of WestJet's daily flight plans, the airline also announced increased frequency to other destinations out of their Vancouver gateway.
