Federal Transport Minister Lawrence Cannon said yesterday WestJet, along with Skyservice Airlines Inc., and Sunwing Airlines Inc. are now designated to operate scheduled international air services between Canada and Mexico.
Air Transat was also given the go-ahead to operate additional scheduled air services between the two countries, in accordance with the existing bilateral air transport agreement.
"I am pleased with these new services, which will provide more options for Canadians travelling to Mexico on scheduled air services," said Cannon in a release.
Canada's international air transportation policy requires all Canadian air carriers apply for designation to operate scheduled international services.
WestJet called the new destination a "tremendous opportunity for the airline," which had been seeking scheduled routes to Mexico and the Carribean.
Previously, WestJet had offered scheduled flights to 26 domestic cities, 11 U.S. destinations and one international site -- the Bahamas.
