WestJet is adding non-stop flights to Florida, Mexico and Costa Rica to attract more snowbird-driven travellers.

The airline announced Monday it will add 85 flights across its domestic and international network for the winter 2015-2016 flight schedule.

WestJet’s regional airline, WestJet Encore, will also begin service three times a day to Boston, its first U.S. destination.

New non-stop service will run between Toronto and West Palm Beach and Toronto and Sarasota, as well as between Toronto and Boston and Halifax and Boston.

The airline will also introduce new service to Mexico between Toronto and Huatulco, Toronto and Merida, and Toronto and Cabo San Lucas, as well as additional service to Costa Rica between Toronto and San Jose.
