WINNIPEG — Summer jet-setters will have ample travel options this summer when flying out of Winnipeg’s James Richardson International Airport.

WestJet on Monday announced the restoration of select routes out of several Canadian markets to 94 percent of its pre-pandemic flight levels.

At its peak, WestJet will serve 43 domestic, 23 transborder, 16 Caribbean and eight transatlantic destinations this summer.
