WestJet adding jets to fly fans from Winnipeg to Las Vegas

CALGARY, May 10, 2018 /CNW/ - WestJet is making a call to hockey fans across Manitoba to board its jets headed to Las Vegas, Nevada. The airline announced today it's adding two special nonstop flights between Winnipeg and Las Vegas on May 17 and May 20. WestJet is the only airline featuring non-stop service from Winnipeg to the McCarran International Airport (LAS) in Las Vegas.

"WestJet is thrilled to support the Winnipeg hockey community and our WestJetters in their love of Canada's game," said John Weatherill, WestJet Vice President, Pricing and Revenue Management and Chief Winnipeg Hockey Fan. "We look forward to flying the spirit of Canadian hockey to Las Vegas and welcoming fans on board our jets for a convenient nonstop flight."

WestJet's special flights will operate in both directions from Winnipeg to Las Vegas on May 17 and 20. Manitobans wishing to travel outside of these times can also fly nonstop from Winnipeg to Las Vegas, twice weekly this summer on Thursdays and Sundays or up to three times daily through Calgary.

Seats are for sale now on WestJet.com and additional flights may be determined at the whims of the hockey gods.
