  • This winter, WestJet will operate approximately 313 flights out of Edmonton International Airport per week
  • Edmonton is one of the most connected cities in WestJet's network, and will see new or increased flight frequency on 10 of 16 domestic routes
  • Providing 50 per cent of all air travel from Edmonton International Airport, WestJet is proud to stand as the number one carrier in the region
