“Having started service little more than a year ago, we are delighted with the response from the communities we serve and we thank the more than 1,000,000 guests who have flown with us so far,” President of WestJest Encore, Ferio Pugliese said. “It is a source of pride for all WestJetters that we have been able to provide service to communities previously isolated from air travel and that our low-cost business model is liberating more Canadians from the high cost of air travel, as we have done throughout our history as an airline.”
WestJet Encore began service in Fort St. John last year with 3 aircraft serving 4 destinations. Today, they operate 13 aircraft to 18 destinations with more than 100 departures daily.
They’re also in the process of receiving 12 more Bombardier Q400 Next Gen aircraft.
“We are moving quickly, growing our national footprint as an airline and we look forward to providing guests from coast to coast the opportunity to fly WestJet Encore and connect into our broader network of more than 85 destinations in 19 countries, in addition to our growing worldwide network of codeshare and interline partners,” Pugliese said.
In partnership with airlines representing every major region of the world, WestJet Encore offers guests more than 120 destinations in more than 20 countries.
Members of the WestJet Rewards program earn WestJet dollars on flights, vacation packages and more.
Among other recognitions, WestJest Encore has been awarded with the 2014 Value Airline of the Year by Air Transport World magazine.
