WATCH ABOVE (May 9): Airline changes as COVID-19 restrictions ease
In late April, the Calgary-based carrier said it was cancelling some 18,000 flights between May 5 and June 4.
An announcement from WestJet on Sunday says domestic route suspensions will continue through July 4, and that several domestic seasonal routes also won’t begin until July.
It further says it is extending its temporary transborder and international route suspensions through to June 25.
WestJet says the move is to “address significantly reduced guest demand for air travel while continuing to keep critical economic lifelines open for essential travel and cargo.”
