WestJet begins service this week between Abbotsford and Las Vegas.

Starting this week, WestJest begins twice-weekly non-stop service between Abbotsford and Las Vegas.

Dave Holmberg, chair of the Abbotsford Airport Authority, said the Abbotsford International Airport recently eliminated several fees, including the airport improvement fee on direct international flights, creating a “cost-friendly environment for WestJet to grow its service from the Fraser Valley.”

“This new service will definitely enhance the ease and convenience for our guests,” Holmberg said.

Abbotsford Mayor Henry Braun said the added service is “great news.”

“The airport is one of our main economic drivers and is a key factor in making us a regional hub for transportation and investment,” he said.

The new service is available starting this Thursday, Oct. 29. It leaves Abbotsford on Thursdays at 11:54 a.m. and returns from Vegas on Sundays at 2:25 p.m.

Flights also depart from Las Vegas on Thursdays at 3:55 p.m. and return from Abbotsford on Sundays at 6:47 p.m.
