On Monday, July 22 the Northwest Regional Airport in conjunction with WestJet announced that for the first time WestJet will be offering flights between Vancouver and Terrace beginning late November.
Twice daily flights on WestJet’s newest Bombardier Q400 NextGen turboprop aircraft will be offered as of November 25, 2013, and passengers are now able to book flights by visiting www.westjet.com.
According to WestJet, the company is pleased to be bringing this service to the Skeena Valley, given the diverse economic projects around the region. The growth of natural resources in the region has driven the decision to bring this additional service.
“The Terrace-Kitimat Airport Society welcomes WestJet Encore as the newest partner providing service to northwest British Columbia. The addition of Encore service completes another step in becoming the true Northwest Regional Airport,” said airport manager Carman Hendry.
