YYZ-YLW direct flights pre-COVID?

Did this direct route exist pre-COVID on the WestJet schedule? I realize YLW was Swoop'd, however I don't see a YHM-YLW option on Swoop's schedule either.

I have friends in YLW and would like to visit them. I have a preference of taking direct flights instead of having to connect.

It looks like those other guys with the red leaf have a direct flight, so that's the second option.

WS won't have direct flights from the eastern hub (YYZ) to points in the west, they will route through their western hubs (YYC, YVR) instead. You will not see a direct flight.

This route did exist pre-COVID. I believe it was mostly a summer seasonal route. Might be back for S21

I'd hang on a couple of days to decide

Operative word being pre-COVID! Too soon to know what will happen in S21.

This must be what Fisch is talking about.

I don't think the headline in the link is correct though.



As part of its continued recovery plans, Swoop is announcing the start of operations at Toronto Pearson Airport beginning on Oct. 25, 2020. As Canada’s leading ultra low-cost carrier (ULCC), Swoop is well-positioned to serve price-sensitive travellers while stimulating demand in Canada’s largest market.

Swoop’s service at Toronto Pearson Airport will include a mix of domestic and international routes. The winter schedule outlining the destinations and routes will be released in September.

If you can't get to California due to COVID, Kelownafornia is the next best substitute
