New sun services take flight

WestJet launches service to Antigua and Barbuda, Curaçao and Costa Rica 
CALGARY, Oct. 28, 2012 /CNW/ - WestJet will launch non-stop seasonal service 
to three new exciting sun destinations today and tomorrow, plus a fourth in 
mid-November, offering Canadian travellers even greater choices via Toronto 
Pearson International Airport. 
Today, WestJet will inaugurate twice-weekly service between Toronto Pearson 
and Antigua and Barbuda's V.C. Bird International Airport. The first flight 
departs Toronto Pearson at 9:20 a.m. EDT. Also today, WestJet launches weekly 
service to Curaçao International Airport with the departure of the inaugural 
flight at 9:15 a.m. EDT. 
Tomorrow, WestJet commences twice-weekly non-stop seasonal service to Liberia, 
Costa Rica, with the departure of the first flight at 9:10 a.m. EDT. 
And on November 16, 2012, WestJet will add daily non-stop seasonal service 
between Toronto Pearson and Port of Spain, Trinidad and Tobago. 
"With the addition of three more sun destinations from Toronto Pearson today 
and tomorrow, plus another one two weeks from now, WestJet continues to expand 
service from Canada's largest airport," said Peter Tong, WestJet's Director of 
Network and Schedule Planning. "We have almost doubled our service from 
Toronto Pearson to international destinations in just three short years, and 
have grown our overall service by almost one-third in the same period. 
Clearly, we remain focused on continued growth at a key Canadian gateway." 
"Seeing WestJet's continued growth at Toronto Pearson is very encouraging," 
said Howard Bohan, Vice President, Aviation Services for the Greater Toronto 
Airports Authority. "These additional destinations offer more choices for 
people looking to get away this winter."
