CALGARY, Canada -- WestJet has announced new non-stop weekly service between Calgary and Belize, effective November 3, 2017. The service is part of the airline's seasonal schedule for the winter of 2017-18, which includes more flights from Calgary.

"WestJet will increase service from Calgary by 52 weekly flights this winter," said Brian Znotins, WestJet Vice-president, network planning, alliances and corporate development. "As the carrier with more flights from Calgary International Airport than any other, we have designed our Calgary flight schedules to deliver 55 percent more connecting itineraries, which will help to launch new flights in future seasons and further expand our presence in YYC – a key driver in economic and employment growth in the city."

"The considerable increase in frequencies out of YYC, combined with the introduction of WestJet's Calgary to Belize route is exciting news for Albertans," said Bob Sartor, president and CEO for the Calgary Airport Authority. "Enhancing the WestJet network out of their home base is a strategic investment to advance one of their largest hubs, and provide YYC passengers with more options to connect out of Calgary."

This winter WestJet will operate an average of 700 daily flights to 93 destinations including 37 in Canada, 22 in the United States, 33 in Mexico, the Caribbean and Central America, and one in Europe.
