Residents of Cranbrook, BC will have a new option for connecting to international flights, with a new WestJet Link service to Vancouver International Airport, launching Oct. 27.
The flights will operate daily and will be operated through a capacity purchase agreement with Pacific Coastal by using its fleet of 34-seat Saab 340B aircraft. Each aircraft includes six seats available in WestJet Premium, offering guests advanced boarding, no-charge for two checked bags and seating at the front of the aircraft.
"This new route linking interior British Columbia with our Vancouver hub provides convenient travel options between the two areas and gives our guests in Cranbrook access to a second WestJet hub with connections across our entire network," said Brian Znotins, WestJet vice-president network planning and alliances. "WestJet is now providing the City of Cranbrook with the most flights and options to travel easily across the country and beyond."
With the addition of Vancouver-Cranbrook, WestJet Link will now operate six routes including Calgary to Cranbrook, Lethbridge, Prince George, Lloydminster and Medicine Hat.
