WestJet announces service from Charlottetown to Orlando
WestJet announced today that it is launching non-stop weekly service from Charlottetown, PEI to Orlando, Florida.
Doug Newson, CEO of Charlottetown Airport noted, "We are very pleased to see WestJet launch this new exciting product for our market.” He added, "This is great news for Islanders as the community and our frequent travellers have been looking for direct service to Florida from Charlottetown for a long time.”
The seasonal weekly service from Charlottetown to Orlando begins on Friday, December 18th, 2015 and will run every week until April 29th, 2016. The flight will depart Charlottetown at 4:50 p.m.
Newson stated, "Establishing this new winter service came as the result of many years of working with WestJet to show that there is demand here for this flight. It will provide a very convenient way for Islanders to get to Florida and we are optimistic that the community will support this service to ensure its success.”
"We are pleased to bring Islanders their first sun destination on WestJet,” said Chris Avery, WestJet Vice-President, Network Planning, Alliances and Corporate Development. "Whether it’s the Walt Disney World Resort, SeaWorld, Universal, conventions or cruises, Orlando has something for everyone.”
In addition to this great news, WestJet also announced improvements to its winter domestic program for Charlottetown. For the first time ever, WestJet will be providing daily service from Charlottetown to Toronto through the winter months.
Of special significance, Avery noted, is the move to daily service between Charlottetown and Toronto this winter. "This new daily service will provide Islanders convenient connections to WestJet’s domestic, US and international networks via Toronto for business and leisure travellers alike.”
Effective October 26, 2015, daily flights to Toronto will depart Charlottetown at 6:25 a.m. "This is a considerable change to our winter product offering as it will more than double our WestJet domestic capacity in the winter months and provide another alternative for travellers wanting to start their travel day from PEI early in the morning,” noted Newson.
