Travellers flying to Hamilton, Ontario from Winnipeg and vice versa can now do so directly on WestJet.
The airline launched its non-stop service between the two cities on Tuesday with a departing flight from John C. Munro Hamilton International Airport.
“These routes mean lower fares and reduced travel times for Hamiltonians visiting friends and family in Halifax, Edmonton and Winnipeg and vice versa,” said Brian Znotins, WestJet vice-president, network planning.
Winnipeg is one of 27 weekly departures to seven non-stop destinations out of Hamilton. The route between the two cities will depart three times weekly until October 26.
