Westjet Expands Winter Routes From Abbotsford to Mexico


WestJet has announced an expansion of routes this winter, with more connections from Abbotsford International Airport (YXX) to a pair of Mexican destinations.

Abbotsford to Puerto Vallarta will depart twice weekly starting on Dec. 5, while Abbotsford to Los Cabos will run once a week starting on Dec. 4.

“Today’s announcement brings more opportunity for our guests across the Fraser Valley to seamlessly connect to their favourite sun destinations this winter,” stated John Weatherill, WestJet group executive vice-president and chief commercial officer. “We are proud to continue providing extensive and affordable opportunities for Canadians from east to west and everywhere in between to fulfill their aspirations to escape the cold and find the sun this winter.”

WestJet also announced more service between Abbotsford and Alberta. YXX to Calgary will run daily year-round, while Abbotsford to Edmonton will be five times weekly year-round. This is designed to soften the blow from the shutdown of Swoop, which will occur on Oct. 28.

”Abbotsford was integral to Swoop’s success and remains a valuable part of the WestJet Group’s future,” Weatherill added. “As we work through this transitionary period, WestJet’s service from Abbotsford will be centered on our strategic focus of providing non-stop connectivity to the sun destinations we know our guests rely on us for to escape the winter cold.”
