WestJet Encore makes connection across prairies

16 January 2014

WestJet Encore said it has launched daily non-stop service between Winnipeg, Manitoba and Regina, Saskatchewan.

The first flight leaves Regina International Airport at 6:00 a.m. CDT and arrives at Winnipeg´s James Armstrong Richardson Airport at 7:11 a.m. CDT.

Non-stop service between the two prairie cities resumes after a five-year hiatus, operated twice-daily on board WestJet Encore´s new fleet of Bombardier Q400 NextGen aircraft. Expansion of the regional carrier´s network continues to build in the New Year, with TODAY marking the 16th destination. More destinations are still to come as more aircraft arrive, creating greater capacity and frequency in the network.

WestJet offers scheduled service to more than 85 destinations in North America, Central America, the Caribbean and Europe. For more information, visit
