WestJet Launches Flights To Palm Beaches From Toronto

WestJet launched its much-anticipated nonstop, seasonal service to the Palm Beaches from Toronto on Dec. 11. Flights will be offered twice weekly, Fridays and Mondays, between the Toronto Pearson and Palm Beach international airports.

“We’re thrilled that WestJet is providing another easy and convenient direct flight option for our Canadian visitors,” said Jorge Pesquera, president and CEO of Discover the Palm Beaches. “The highest percentage of our destination’s international tourists are traveling from Canada.”

DTPB’s data shows 266,000 Canadians visited Palm Beach County from January through September 2015. In 2014, more than 360,000 Canadians spent an estimated $470 million and stayed 343,000 hotel room nights in the Palm Beaches

“We are pleased to provide nonstop, twice-weekly service between Toronto and West Palm Beach,” said WestJet spokesman Robert Palmer. “We look forward to providing Canadians with easy access to the Palm Beaches, as well as Floridians with the opportunity to visit any number of Canadian destinations.”
