WestJet Encore now flying to the United States

CALGARY, March 15, 2016 /CNW/ - With the departure of flight 3600, WestJet Encore today inaugurated new service between Toronto and Boston, the newest addition to WestJet's growing network. The new service will operate three times daily on WestJet Encore's fleet of Canadian-made Bombardier Q400 NextGen aircraft.

"WestJet Encore is extremely proud to begin flying year-round between Toronto Pearson International Airport and Boston's Logan International Airport," said Ferio Pugliese, President, WestJet Encore. "We are proud to bring WestJet's low fares and exceptionally caring service to Beantown. Flights from Toronto are timed perfectly for business travellers looking for same-day travel options, while Bostonians heading north will have the opportunity to connect into WestJet's ever-expanding Canadian and European networks.

"Massport welcomes WestJet to Logan Airport," said Massport CEO Thomas P. Glynn. "WestJet joins Logan's long list of international carriers, and this flight provides another way for our customers to travel to and from Canada."

In less than three years, WestJet Encore has gone from two aircraft serving two destinations to 26 aircraft serving 33 cities including Boston. In June, WestJet Encore will also launch service to Nashville, Tennessee.
