WS adds seasonal YYC-YYG

An interesting choice of route.

https://www.routesonline.com/news/38...ervice-in-s20/

WestJet in summer 2020 season plans to add new domestic route from Calgary, where the airline is offering seasonal Calgary Charlottetown service. Operated by Boeing 737-700, this route will be served from 25JUN20 to 06SEP20 (Calgary departure), 4 times weekly.

Calgary to Charlottetown?

Calgary to Charlottetown? Strange choice...no wonder WJ loses a lot of money! However, maybe PEI being at the verge of bankruptcy has relaxed its laws on gambling, guns, drugs, prostitution...in order to lure US/Canada tourists to the island...otherwise the damn place is a barren place!? Sorry PEI folks...no offense meant...

I though the Japanese were in love with PEI. Perhaps setting up feeder flight for the eventualy flight to Tokyo.

On a more serious note PEI is a great place to visit.
