WestJet launches Montreal-Boston Nonstop Service

WestJet has begun nonstop service between Montreal and Boston. The inaugural flight from Montreal Trudeau International Airport arrived at Boston Logan International Airport on October 15, marking the last of three new routes launched by WestJet from Montreal this year.
"WestJet has significantly expanded its service to, from and within the province of Quebec in 2017," said Brian Znotins, WestJet Vice-President, Network Planning, Alliances and Corporate Development. "This expansion demonstrates our commitment to bring lower airfares to communities across Canada and create new opportunities for business and leisure travellers to get more value for their travel budgets."  
"I would like to thank WestJet for their confidence in us and for their support," said Philippe Rainville, President and CEO of Aéroports de Montréal. "Boston is a popular destination for our passengers, who travel there both for business and leisure. The addition of two flights per day enhances the departure options from Montréal and offers greater flexibility. This is great news for Montréal and confirms Montréal-Trudeau's position as a hub."
"With several different destinations to choose from, Boston Logan has become a terrific gateway for those traveling to Canada," Massport CEO Thomas P. Glynn said. "We are pleased that WestJet is adding twice daily flights to Montreal to our roster, providing even more options for our customers to enjoy Canada."
WestJet began point-to-point service for the first time within the province of Quebec on June 15, 2017, with four daily flights between Montreal and Quebec City. In addition, the airline launched twice-daily service between Montreal and Halifax on March 15, 2017. With the addition of WestJet's new services, the airline now operates an average of 167 weekly departures from Montreal.
All three new routes are operated by WestJet's regional airline, WestJet Encore, and its fleet of Canadian-made Bombardier Q400s. Proud to support this iconic Canadian company, WestJet flies the fourth largest fleet of Q400s in the world. By mid-2018, the regional airline will have a total of 45 aircraft.
WestJet began serving Boston Logan International Airport in 2016 with thrice daily service from Toronto on WestJet Encore.
