Beginning June 20, 2024, WestJet will operate new non-stop, twice weekly seasonal service between Fredericton and Calgary, igniting two-way tourism and business opportunities, while also bolstering connectivity between Atlantic Canada and WestJet’s global hub in Calgary. 

“The addition of service between Fredericton and Calgary is a testament to our ongoing commitment to deliver on our promise to expand our service in Atlantic Canada through critical east-to-west connectivity, which has been met with strong community support,” said Andrew Gibbons, WestJet Vice-President of External Affairs. “The route we are celebrating today will not only foster enhanced business and leisure ties but further strengthen the connection between the vibrant and unique economies in both Fredericton and Calgary.”

“We’re delighted to welcome WestJet’s non-stop route from Fredericton to Calgary,” said Johanne Gallant, President and CEO of the Fredericton International Airport Authority. “YFC is a growing airport in a thriving region, and this new flight brings the connectivity families, businesses and visitors are looking for.” 

“WestJet’s new Calgary-Fredericton service will be great news to a growing number of Albertans looking to vacation in the Fredericton and the rest of the Maritimes," said David Seabrook, Director of Tourism for the Fredericton Capital Region. "The connections between family and friends in the two provinces are historically very strong and this new route will be great for those wanting to plan a visit to New Brunswick's Capital City this summer."
