WATCH ABOVE: Abbotsford’s Mayor Henry Braun talks about how WestJet offering flights from Abbotsford to Las Vegas will benefit the city.
VANCOUVER – Starting Oct. 29, WestJet will be offering non-stop, twice-weekly service to Las Vegas from the Abbotsford Airport.
Following the elimination of several fees, including the airport improvement fee, WestJet took this as an opportunity to grow the service from the Fraser Valley.
“Abbotsford and WestJet have been partners since 1997, and we see the recently announced fee drops at the airport as an opportunity to further build service in the area,” said Gregg Saretsky, WestJet president and CEO, in a release. “We need more airport authorities across Canada to think like Abbotsford.”
The flights will be on Thursday and Sunday, with fares starting at $111.89 for the total cost of a one-way ticket.
