WestJet has begun its new nonstop twice-weekly flight between Austin-Bergstrom International Airport (AUS) and Calgary International Airport (YYC). The new destination adds to WestJet’s network out of Calgary where the airline operates the most flights to the most destinations. “We’re thrilled to welcome the fun, funky and innovative city of Austin to the WestJet network,” said Arved von zur Muehlen, WestJet chief commercial officer. “Including the just-launched destinations of Atlanta and Portland, these three key markets help diversify Alberta’s economy, open new trade links and forge stronger connections between Alberta and these major destinations. We are pleased to share our caring Canadian spirit with Texans once again.” Austin is WestJet’s second destination in Texas where the airline also operates twice-daily flights to Houston.
