Canadian airline to offer international flights from Phoenix-Mesa airport
PHOENIX — Many people have recently expressed a desire to travel to Canada and an airline has just made things a bit easier.
According to the Phoenix Business Journal, Canadian airline WestJet announced that it will begin offering flights between Calgary and Edmonton, Alberta to Phoenix-Mesa Gateway Airport. These flights will become available starting Jan. 19.
Officials have stated that flights to Calgary will occur three times a week and Edmonton only once a week.
Founder and CEO of Canada Arizona Business Council Glenn Williamson explained that WestJet’s announcement was in conjunction with NewLeaf Travel Co. also offering flights from the East Valley airport.
The point of differentiation is not the number of flights, it’s the size of the airplanes. The real game changer will be more airlines like this one coming in here and pulling from those other destinations such as Florida. We’ll erode the East Coast market.
WestJet joins NewLeaf as the third airline, Allegiant Airlines, to offer flights out of the Phoenix-Mesa Gateway airport.
