Is Grande Prairie up north. Do they have oil up there?

Yes on both counts. It's a bustling little city, not quite on the same scale as Fort McMurray, but it's definitely up there.

Good to see Kamloops finally getting daily service out of YYC... I figured this would be reality some day soon, and I suppose here it is!



Bad spellers of the world... UNTIE!

Interesting that both YKA-YYC and YQU-YYC were announced as seasonal for the winter. I guess this is to feed the Calgary hub with southbound sunseekers. Would probably get some inbound ski traffic to Sun Peaks in Kamloops too. More winter schedule enhancements to come from Westjet??

YKA is seasonal and YQU will be year round.

This is really nice too see.
Now if they would only add a few more destinations from YWG that would be even better!

Grande Prairie,Alberta. Located in the northwestern part of the province. Population of about 50,000. Main industries oil and gas,forestry and agriculture. The city is the regional centre for commerce,shopping,etc and draws on a market within a two hour drive. Yields for airlines in the market are likey better than most. Those airlines being primarily AC and WS with service to YEG and YYC.

Hmm.........you're right. I missed that. Should be interesting. Looks like PVR & CUN will be scheduled service. They already fly to these destinations as Transat metal I believe. No doubt we'll see YYC-CUN/PRV and YYZ-CUN

Yes, the press release would seem to imply that YQU-YYC is year round, but looking at the route map on WJA's website it is indicated as seasonal. I'm sure if it is seasonal, it will be yearround very shortly.
