WestJet adds Hamilton - Las Vegas route to its fall schedule

Eleven-week trial will gauge interest from Hamiltonians

CALGARY, July 25, 2011 /CNW/ - WestJet today announced it will introduce twice-weekly service from Hamilton to Las Vegas for an 11-week trial period beginning September 9, 2011.

"This is definitely new for us," commented John MacLeod, WestJet Vice-President, Network Management and Alliances. "As we prepare for the annual fall transition of our fleet we had a window of additional flying time over an 11-week period. The people of the greater Hamilton area have always supported WestJet and we wanted to thank them by testing the feasibility of service to Las Vegas. Based on the demand during the 11-week trial, we will determine if this route is a viable option to consider as our fleet grows."

Service from Hamilton to Las Vegas will operate Mondays and Fridays from September 9 to November 28, 2011. One-way fares for this service are available from $169.
