HOUSTON — WestJet will double its service to Houston with a new daily flight from George Bush Intercontinental Airport beginning in May 2017.
With the addition, the Calgary, Alberta-based airline — which debuted nonstop service to Houston from Calgary International Airport in September 2015 — will offer an 8 a.m. flight (local time) from Bush Airport to Calgary every day except Sundays, and a 6:45 p.m. (local time) flight from Calgary that will arrive in Houston at 11:44 p.m. As well, WestJet will continue its 6-day-per-week route that arrives at Houston at 3:24 p.m. and returns to Calgary at 5 p.m.
“Houston is well known as the ‘Energy Capital of the World’ and Calgary is widely recognized as one of Canada’s main centers of the energy business,” said Molly Waits, Houston Airport System Director of Air Service Development. “That connection makes this expansion a natural next step, and the possibilities for continued partnerships in the future are virtually unlimited.”
WestJet and regional arm WestJet Encore offer scheduled service to more than 100 destinations in North America, Central America, the Caribbean and Europe, with more than 150 destinations in more than 20 countries available.
