WestJet invests in Calgary International Airport as its strategic hub

WestJet has significantly invested in Calgary International Airport (YYC) in Alberta, Canada, with the goal of building the site as its connecting hub.

WestJet’s decision to invest more in Calgary is driven by a desire to continue to grow its hometown hub and to better align connecting times for business and leisure travelers. WestJet connects passengers to 55 non-stop destinations out of Calgary.

Bob Sartor, president and CEO of Calgary Airport Authority, said, “We know that WestJet has always seen Calgary as a strong connections platform to grow their business. However, today’s announcement signifies an immense investment into YYC as a strategic partner.”

Gregg Saretsky, WestJet president and CEO, added, “WestJet provides more service at YYC than any other carrier and we are committed to continuing to expand our presence in the years to come. We are pleased to announce new service to Belize as well as an additional 52 flights per week this winter which will help drive growth at the airport and in the community.”

YYC has been the home of WestJet since it started service in 1996, when it served five domestic destinations with three aircraft. Its network out of YYC has grown to 113 daily flights, including its first transatlantic flight out of Calgary with London Gatwick launching in 2016.
