WestJet will launch new daily non-stop service between Calgary (YYC)  and Penticton with its inaugural flight to wine country on Sunday, October 26, 2014.

"We're excited to be bringing our low fares and remarkable guest experience to the South Okanagan," saysPaul Harvalias, WestJet Vice-President, Revenue Management. "With fares starting as low as $99 including taxes, fees and charges, we continue to liberate Canadians in smaller communities from the high cost of air travel.

"Whether it's skiing and snowboarding through the champagne powder at Apex Mountain Resort in the winter or wakeboarding on Okanagan Lake in the summer, it truly is a community with year-round appeal and we're pleased to be bringing visitors to the region to enjoy all it has to offer. And of course, having dozens of wineries within a short drive makes the 'aprés' activities even more relaxing."

Details of WestJet's new daily Penticton service are as follows:

Flight Departure Arrival Type
WS 3281 Calgary at 2:10 p.m. Penticton at 2:26 p.m. Non-stop
WS 3280 Penticton at 3 p.m. Calgary at 5:05 p.m. Non-stop

"YYC is pleased to welcome WestJet Encore's newest service to this attractive leisure destination in the Festival Centre of the Okanagan," says Stephan Poirier, Senior Vice- President and Chief Commercial Officer. "With the best connections in Western Canada, YYC is truly the place where business and leisure travellers can connect from here to everywhere. The addition of Penticton to our growing route network means more passengers in Southern British Columbia will have the opportunity to experience the world."

South Okanagan travellers will be able to connect via Calgary to and from Los Angeles and Las Vegas, WestJet's most-popular U.S. destination, as well as Canadian destinations such as Victoria, Vancouver, Fort McMurray,Edmonton, Saskatoon, Regina, Winnipeg, Hamilton, Toronto, Ottawa and Halifax.

Penticton is one 24 cities served by WestJet Encore  which launched in June 2013. In 2015, the regional airline will launch service to Quebec City, Quebec, and Fredericton, New Brunswick.
