Haha; waited until midnight Calgary time to post the thread to make sure it was 'today', eh? But it's still 'tomorrow' in SAN for a little while.  Wink

In any case, hope this works out for WS. The success (and hopefully increase) of their Transborder flights will be the biggest key to their overall profitability this year, as well as their subsequent expansion.
Next flight.... who knows.

What kind of traffic are they hoping for?

Is there natural tourism or economic trading going on?

I could see DFW/IAH to YYC happening...

Any chance Westjet will reinstate LAX-YYZ service in the future now that Jetsgo ceased operations?

Apparently Jetsgo wasn't even an issue for the poor performance of the route. Not likely to comeback.

WEstJet seems so far are interested in hitting up the routes that promote big with tourism and family leisure such as Theme parks, Ocean Liner Ports, beaches etc. That is how places like the US coastal destinations are on their radar.
It is possitlbe that many people may fly to SAN and then transfer to the cruiselines or just have fun for a weekend hitting up Seaworld.

Next on the list.. Hawaii...

WestJet's direct service is a boon. Don't think there isn't any traffic between the two cities and it's not all leisure either. The majority of people have only one convenient choice today - and it's on Alaska Airlines usually via SEA. With the direct service, I see fares dropping. And maybe a possibility of even AS offering a similar service seasonally.

First flight had 100 inbound from YYC and about 35 outbound from SAN to YYC. The SAN-outbound pax number was a bit of a surprise to WestJet, they thought it would be lower.

It should go up in winter ski season.
