WestJet has called a news conference in Saskatoon on Thursday at which time the airline is expected to announce a direct flight to Las Vegas.
In a company press release issued Wednesday, the Calgary-based airline said it will be announcing "a new direct service for one of North America's favourite places for fun and sun." An Elvis Presley impersonator is scheduled to be present at the event.
Last year, WestJet attempted to arrange a direct-service flight to Las Vegas from Saskatoon, but customs officials would not accommodate the flight.
