WestJet's regional airline, WestJet Encore, will also begin service three times a day to Boston, its first U.S. destination, with convenient connections via Toronto Pearson.

"Our upcoming winter schedule also adds many new routes, extends routes from seasonal to year-round and increases frequencies within Canada to improve our business and leisure products. And we're excited to bring on stream our Boeing 767-300ER aircraft to fly between Alberta and Hawaii this winter - yet another important milestone for WestJet."
