WestJet announced they’ll be flying more frequently from Calgary to cities in Quebec this year.

Operations between Montreal and Calgary will increase from 14 flights per week to 19.

“Our unique brand of great service and low fares has been embraced across Canada for more than 20 years and today, WestJet is here to offer more choice and competition to the Quebec market,” said Bob Cummings, WestJet Executive Vice-President Commercial in a release. “The people in Quebec have traditionally been served by a legacy carrier and WestJet believes this significant additional investment in the province will give leisure and corporate travellers a choice in airlines and bring lower fares to more than 8.2 million Quebecers.

With increased service and new routes to and from Montréal–Pierre Elliott Trudeau International Airport as well as Quebec City’s Jean Lesage International Airport, overall, the airline is adding 105 more flights per week in the province, a capacity increase of 74 per cent.
