YYG Welcomes Return of WestJet to PEI for Summer Season

Charlottetown, PE – The Charlottetown Airport Authority Inc. (CAA) is pleased to welcome the return WestJet to YYG Charlottetown Airport for the 2024 summer season today.

The first WestJet flight is scheduled to arrive this evening from Toronto Pearson International Airport, a routing that will operate three times weekly through to mid-October. Service from Calgary International Airport begins tomorrow, while non-stop flights from Edmonton International Airport are set to start on June 19th.

“We are delighted to have WestJet back at YYG just in time for summer season with the return of non-stop Toronto service and the always popular flights from Calgary and Edmonton, Alberta,” says Doug Newson, CEO of the Charlottetown Airport Authority. “WestJet is an important partner for our airport, and our entire province, and we look forward to seeing Islanders and tourists visiting our province take advantage of their non-stop service as well as an expanding network of offerings.”

“We understand how important air service is to the Island and we are thrilled to reconnect Charlottetown to Toronto, Calgary and Edmonton in advance of P.E.I.’s busy summer season,” said Morgan Bell, Manager of Public Relations, WestJet. “This summer, we are strengthening Atlantic Canada’s leisure and business connectivity to major destinations across our network including through our global hub in Calgary where guests are one flight away from an expansive list of international destinations, including Seoul, South Korea and Tokyo, Japan.”

“After a record-breaking year in 2023, the return of WestJet service from Toronto and an earlier start to Alberta service will help support the continued momentum of air access to and from PEI.  We need to provide guests with reliable, varied, and year-round air routes in and out of Charlottetown if we want to meet the goals of our five-year tourism strategy. The Province of Prince Edward Island is appreciative of WestJet service and the incredible work of YYG in strengthening this partnership. WestJet and YYG offer guests an exceptional experience and we are pleased to see this partnership grow.”
