Daily (business days) non-stop to YWG, weekend non-stop to YYC. See below

WestJet Announces All-Jet Service to Windsor, Ontario
Thursday January 23, 10:01 am ET


CALGARY, Alberta--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Jan. 23, 2003--WestJet (TSX:WJA - News) today announced that it is adding service to the new Ontario market of Windsor (starting April 1, 2003).
WestJet will offer non-stop service each business day between Winnipeg and Windsor, as well as weekend non-stop service between Windsor and Calgary. Introductory one-way fares between Winnipeg and Windsor will start as low as $99, and one-way fares between Windsor and Calgary will start as low as $179. Seats are available for sale immediately.

Bill Lamberton, WestJet's Vice-President of Marketing and Sales, commented today: "We are pleased to announce our entry into the market of Windsor-the eighth city in Ontario to receive our unique brand of fun, friendly, low-fare jet service.

"With our entrance into Windsor, over five million people within 65 km of the city will be a short drive away from WestJet's low-fares and our Canada-wide network. Windsor residents will no longer have to fly east through Toronto when travelling west. Western Canadians and those living in Windsor will finally have a real choice in low-fare travel when visiting friends, family, and business associates."

From Windsor, WestJet will offer service to the following western Canadian destinations: Victoria, Comox, Vancouver, Abbotsford/Fraser Valley, Prince George, Kelowna, Calgary, Edmonton, Grande Prairie, Fort McMurray, Saskatoon, Regina, and Winnipeg.

This is diffently good news for the City of Windsor. Since AC Tango pulled out of Windsor-Winnipeg this past summer, it will be very intresting to see how they do. With about 5 million people living in the Windsor-Detroit area I am sure the flights to both Winnipeg and Calgary will be filled with ppl going skiing etc.

The close proximity to Detroit will surely hurt Windsor's chances of a lot of expansion, taking into account what Slawko has said regarding lower prices overall in the United States. But as long as the demand exists between Canadian cities being offered, things should work out for WJ. We don't need to talk about the taxes anymore, because we're all aware of their impact.

Regarding WJ in YQG.....this is great news. More inroads by WJ into Ontario. This is the 8th Ontario city for WJ. Yahoo!

While this is good news for the city of Windsor, it could possibly even better news for YWG. Introduction of Windsor's service is operating nearly exact to how YXU's service began, which is now 2 daily flights. It seems Westjet is interested is building up YWG for connecting opportunities. I assume the service will be flown with 73G's. While those taxes are ridiculous, remember that the $60 for Navcan helps make Navcan entirely user funded.

Spyderz, I'm not so sure it's a positive thing that NavCanada is entirely user funded. NavCanada is a government entity, and as such is funded by the people. If you make it funded by user fees, it means less people are paying more. There are pros and cons to this of course, but it also means that it doesn't help demand for air travel. It hurts the industry that in the end NavCanada is being supported by. Just a thought really, I'm not sure which way is better as a whole.

Captaingomes - I was under the impression that Nav Canada was not a government entity, and not funded by Ottawa. From their website:

"NAV CANADA is the non-share capital, private corporation that owns and operates Canada's civil air navigation service (ANS)."

User fees are a huge revenue earner for them, which unfortunately, gets passed on to the passenger. I do not blame the Nav Canada user fee, I am against the federal taxes - specifically the Security Fee (and of course the GST/PST). If security had actually been improved in the past 16 months, then perhaps it can be justified. But superficially at least, I don't see much difference.



buhh bye

Navcan is nominally a not-for-profit entity, but they are responsible for raising their own revenue to cover their expenses. They are actually lauded around the world as THE efficient ATC system to emulate.

Neil, would you agree with me that Ontario is underserved?

Hey Andy, NO CITY is underserved by any airline!  Big thumbs up

I wonder what the 9th Ontario city that WJ serves will be? I really can't think of a SINGLE Canadian city that WJ should still add service to. All the large prosperous ones are already served.......

Seriously, I'm surprized that WJ does not operate the Yellowknife or Whitehorse where the yields are so high.

Me being a YYC boy you don't even want to get me started on the Liberals.

The taxes for Albertans would be a little lower because of no PST, but it's still way too high.

Security tax my ass, how has security improved? The money probably pays for french kids to go skiing.

It's good to see though that more Eastern Canadians are getting fed up and are changing their voting decisions. As most of you know, Liberals don't even stand a chance in the West (well the hippie tree-huggers in BC's interior would vote for them, not that they'd remember when voting day was though). The Liberals are hated the most here in Alberta. They might as well not even campaign out here. We're getting sick of paying more money to the feds than any other province so the Liberals can subsidize a province in which many of it's citizens don't even want to be Canadian, talk about biting the hand that feeds you. But anyway, enough about that, I'm glad I live in YYC and in Stephen Harpers riding  Smile

Good news for Windsor and Winnipeg. Good to see WJ expanding with intellingence and not biting off more than they can chew.

I argree with you Spydez on what you said about Winnipeg. I think Winnipeg is actually considred a westjet hub cause we do get alot of westjet flights and quite a few connecting pax trough here on a daily basis. Since Westjet started service in Winnipeg back in 1996 they have sure built up the Winnipeg for flights as it is considered a "major focus city". I hope the loads will be descent. This is also good news for Detroit Red wings fans here as well.

Oh brother. WJ is an AIRLINE. Its raison d'etre is to MAKE MONEY.

WJ doesn't fly to PEI or the NWT either.....does that mean that WJ does not think that PEI or the NWT is part of Canada??????

The ADM would not show favouritism to AC by not negotiating in good faith with other airlines. Indeed, the ADM is actually rather desperate to build traffic at YUL, given Dorval's drop from 1st to 3rd place among Canadian airports, with YYC challenging for 3rd place.

The primary reason is obviously a lack of market opportunity for WJ in YUL.

"The primary reason is obviously a lack of market opportunity for WJ in YUL."

-And how would you be bold enough to determine this? There tons of article in La Presse and Gazette in the last year, praising WestJet..... then when asking Beddoe about Montreal "We will serve Montreal by the end of the year".. I recently wrote a report about them for class, i've got articles dated in 1999, 2000, 2001, and 2002 with the same stuff.

Again market popularity is defined by the size of its market. Montreal in terms of travel domestically, it still a bigger market than ottawa, thunder bay, winnipeg, Edmonton, YVR/YYZ/YYC are the only ones that are bigger. Arguably, they're domestic networks have been more than perpetuated by the abundance of low-fare routes that are not consolidated on one (for example a good portion of YUL's low fare is YULYYZ)..

Now there is good talk that WJ wants YHU. If they go to YHU, they are adding to the woes of the airport system in this city, we are closing Mirabel for a reason, the last thing we need is YHU to open for the likes of JetsGone, CannedJet and WorstJet....... thannk god the ADM is trying to get control of this airport....
