WestJet Introduces Year-Round Transborder Connectivity: Daily Service from Regina to Minneapolis Announced

Tuesday, November 21, 2023


WestJet has unveiled a new year-round, daily service linking Regina and Minneapolis as part of its summer schedule for 2024. This announcement underscores the airline’s continued dedication to enhancing connectivity in the province and expanding Regina’s air access to sought-after destinations. The route represents Regina’s first year-round transborder service since 2016 and the second direct connection from the province to the Midwest United States, following the launch of WestJet’s year-round service between Saskatoon and Minneapolis in June of the current year.

Jared Mikoch-Gerke, WestJet Director of Alliances & Airport Affairs expressed excitement about responding to the community’s needs and reinforcing their commitment to Regina and the surrounding area. The addition of year-round transborder connectivity to Minneapolis, starting this summer, reflects their dedication to enhancing regional air access. He says, “Our newest investment in Regina will further support the economic growth of the region and unlock business and leisure travel opportunities, as we accelerate providing affordable travel to our guests.”

“We congratulate the Regina Airport Authority and WestJet on this new route, which will give more of this province’s residents direct access to one of the major travel hubs in the United States,” Minister of Trade and Export Development Jeremy Harrison said. “This new route will increase our competitiveness, support our business community and help to bring the world to Saskatchewan.”
