WestJet Encore’s newest service, using Bombardier Q400 NextGen aircraft, is anticipated to benefit the entire northwest region of the province. The Skeena Valley is undergoing a major economic transformation with billions of dollars in investment in forestry, mining, smelting, hydroelectricity, liquefied natural gas and infrastructure projects. The Terrace-Kitimat corridor represents an exciting expansion opportunity for WestJet’s recently launched regional carrier, and for the many projects heading to the area.
“WestJet Encore has enjoyed a very strong start and we expect new service to the Terrace-Kitimat region to continue the momentum.” said Ferio Pugliese, Executive Vice-President, WestJet, and President, WestJet Encore. “Offering greater opportunities for connectivity to the WestJet network with this new, twice-daily service to Terrace-Kitimat at such a significant time in the area’s history and ours is an exciting endeavour, and it is our hope that WestJet Encore will further support the economic development of this area.”
“The Northwest Regional Airport Terrace-Kitimat is proud to welcome WestJet Encore service to the Northwest British Columbia communities of Terrace-Kitimat,” said Carman Hendry, Manager of the Northwest Regional Airport Terrace-Kitimat. “The addition of WestJet Encore will further enhance the growth of airport service and, on a larger scale, our community.”
