Popular sun destination is open for business after Hurricane Odile

CALGARY, Nov. 17, 2014 /CNW/ - WestJet Vacations announced that it is welcoming guests back to Cabo San Lucas beginning today, following the resumption of WestJet air service to the Los Cabos Mexico International Airport on October 26, 2014.

"The area and its many resorts and hotels have undergone significant repairs in the two months since Hurricane Odile devastated the Baja region," said Dave Cecco, WestJet Director, Product. "We are pleased to once again provide our guests with all this popular destination has to offer."

"There are many reasons why the area is truly a Mexican gem," said Tim Croyle, Vice-President and General Manager, WestJet Vacations. "From the authentically Mexican San Jose del Cabo to the upscale Cabo San Lucas, and everything in between, we're encouraging our guests to book with confidence - Cabo is back and ready to go."

WestJet offers non-stop flights to Los Cabos from Vancouver, Kelowna, Edmonton, Calgary, and Winnipeg, with many convenient connections from across Canada.
