Canadian carrier WestJet is adding a new route to the Caribbean for the upcoming winter season.

The airline will launch new twice-weekly nonstop service between Calgary and Montego Bay, Jamaica beginning Nov. 3, according to the company.

“Flying from YYC Calgary International Airport on WestJet can now get you to the sun in Montego Bay along with 63 other non-stop destinations, more than any other airline out of Calgary,” said Tim Croyle, WestJet Interim Executive Vice-President, Commercial at WestJet. “We know that Calgarians are always eager to escape the unpredictable and long winters and we are confident that this service will be extremely popular.”

The carrier is also adding more frequencies from Calgary to the Caribbean, including four more weekly flights to Cancun and one more weekly flight to Belize.

“MBJ welcomes WestJet’s twice-weekly service from Calgary, Canada,” said Rafael Echevarne, CEO, MBJ Airports Limited. “We congratulate WestJet in expanding their service to Montego Bay from other parts of Canada. We look forward to this service and additional passengers from Canada. Welcome to Montego Bay and Jamaica.”
