WestJet is building out its Winnipeg network, adding new year-round, daily service to Montreal, as well as increased, daily, year-round service to Ottawa, beginning June 3, 2024. 

The airline is also introducing new service between Winnipeg and Nashville, set to take off on Sept. 16, 2024, establishing the airline's seventh direct transborder connection out of Manitoba's capital city.

To celebrate the new rotes, an event was held at Winnipeg Richardson International Airport on Monday (April 8). It was attended by Premier of Manitoba Wab Kinew and Nick Hays, President and CEO, Winnipeg Airports Authority. 

"We know how critical Ottawa and Montreal are for Winnipeg's business community, and we are thrilled to continue supporting Winnipeg's economic growth through strategic air service," stated Mike Scott, WestJet Group's executive vice-president and chief financial officer, in a press release. 

"Expanding connectivity for Winnipeg is in direct response to our WestJet Rewards members and loyal business guests' need for reliable and convenient, non-stop service to and from both Ottawa and Montreal."
