YEG sure does gain a lot. Just goes to show how Alberta is booming.

That's for sure. And WJ announced YEG-YXX a few weeks ago as well. Interesting though that Ottawa and Montreal service has still not returned. I guess there's more demand to the Maritimes.........another 'oilpatch' phenomenon.

WS schedule enhancements seem to be a regular occurrence of late. What I find interesting is the non-stop YXX-YYZ flight starts three days before the AC E90 flight. Seems to me WS is out to solidify it's market share and exploit any opportunities now before AC out manouvers them. It going to be interesting watching developments over the next few months!

Looks like its a redeye flight to Halifax! Arrives 0643am turns around and back to YEG at 0715am. I initially thought this might be an interesting route addition but the flight times are less than ideal. Same plane service through to YYT may have been interesting. Cheers.
