WestJet connects Victoria and Vancouver

Airline announces new service across the Strait of Georgia 
CALGARY, Feb. 11, 2013 /CNW/ - WestJet today announced the launch of new daily 
service between Victoria and Vancouver. The service will be operated by 
WestJet Encore's fleet of Bombardier Q400 NextGen aircraft. 
"This type of flying demonstrates the versatility of the Q400 aircraft," said 
Ferio Pugliese, Executive Vice-President, WestJet, and President, WestJet 
Encore. "In addition to new destinations, we are now able to effectively 
connect cities that have WestJet service but not between each other. This type 
of use opens up many new possibilities for us to serve even more Canadians in 
the future." 
"We are looking forward to providing this new service because we know there is 
a great demand for it," said Chris Avery, WestJet Vice-President, Network 
Planning, Alliances and Corporate Development. "We know that many people 
travel frequently between Victoria and Vancouver, most often by ferry. With 
our new 78-seat Bombardier Q400 NextGen aircraft, this will be an affordable, 
quick and comfortable option for any traveller."
