Calgary flights pushed back to June

 

WestJet is delaying the launch of WestJet Link, a capacity purchase agreement between WestJet and Pacific Coastal Airlines, which was scheduled to offer flights between Prince George and Calgary.

The flights were supposed to start in March, but have now been pushed back to June. The delay comes as Pacific Coastal continues its work in order to be fully able to meet WestJet’s operational requirements, according to a WestJet news release.

“WestJet apologizes to our guests for the inconvenience these delays may cause,” said Brian Znotins, WestJet Vice-President Network Planning, Alliances and Corporate Development. “Impacted guests are being offered several different options including alternative transportation to Calgary to embark on their travel from there, obtaining a full refund or changing the date of travel. We again apologize to our guests for this inconvenience and look forward to the launch of our flights from LethbridgeLloydminsterMedicine HatCranbrook and Prince George in June.”
