WestJet DFW - Calgary service to become permanent?

Postby Greg on Fri Dec 27, 2013 7:52 am

Currently, WestJet's DFW-Calgary (YYC) route is seasonal, with operations running last summer for the first time and scheduled again for this summer. However, it appears this route has a good chance of becoming permanent, as WestJet seeks to increase its US presence and up their challenge to Air Canada. DFW was specifically mentioned by their CEO as a route where "there’s an opportunity to take those to year-round service." An announcement may be made next month as WestJet announces their 2014 schedule.

I would expect year-round to happen next year. Their loads improved steadily this summer and this isn't really a tourism/VFR route. There's plenty of business travel to sustain them. It would be great to see them through the winter, instead of pulling out just as daylight savings time ends (and just as decent photo-light begins).
