WestJet has announced a significant extension to its winter schedule, offering non-stop connectivity between Winnipeg and Ottawa. This move comes as a part of WestJet's commitment to fostering meaningful connections and creating new business and tourism opportunities in the communities it serves.
Details of the Extended Service
Initially set to pause temporarily on October 29, 2023, the direct service between Winnipeg and Ottawa will now resume on December 18, 2023, and continue throughout the winter schedule.
