WestJet to Fly into Cranbrook Airport

Wednesday • March 14, 2018

Starting June 20, 2018 WestJet will be servicing flights in and out of the Cranbrook Airport 3 times a day.

Watch video of Cranbrook Airport Manager Tristen Chernove making announcement on Nov 24th. Cranbrook Airport is a one hour drive from Fernie.

Using Pacific Coastal Airlines’ aircraft painted in WestJet colours, WestJet Link will connect Cranbrook to WestJet’s rapidly expanding network hub at the YYC Calgary International Airport. These new routes will add to WestJet’s existing leadership position in Calgary, offering more flights and seats to more destinations than any other airline.

All WestJet Link flights will be operated by Pacific Coastal using its fleet of 34-seat Saab 340B aircraft with three flights per day starting June 20, 2018. Reduced frequency on weekends and some holidays.

“A CPA with Pacific Coastal underscores WestJet’s commitment to offering more Canadians access to WestJet’s low fares and growing network. WestJet Link will be that connection to these communities and will offer more choice and more competition for air travellers, as well as more opportunities to earn and use WestJet Rewards.”

-Ed Sims, WestJet Executive Vice-President, Commercial

“All of us at Pacific Coastal Airlines are excited and proud to be entering this relationship with WestJet. Our two airlines, both based in Western Canada, share many similar corporate and guest service values and we feel that this CPA is a perfect partnership to link many new communities to the WestJet network.”

-Quentin Smith, President, Pacific Coastal Airlines
