WestJet is extending its service suspensions for international and transborder flights through June 25.

The Calgary-based airline has also updated its flight schedule from June 5 through July 4, 2020, as a means of addressing a significant decline in passenger demand for air travel while also maintaining its “critical economic lifelines for essential travel and cargo.”

The service suspensions for domestic flights will reflect the updated changes.

For a comprehensive list of these alterations, visit the WestJet website.

The airline has also extended the seasonal start dates of its domestic markets.

They are as follows:

  • Calgary – Quebec City – July 6
  • Calgary – Charlottetown – July 5
  • Winnipeg – Montreal – July 5
  • Toronto – Kelowna – July 5
  • Toronto – Sydney, Nova Scotia – July 5

“It is through the hard work and dedication of teams across WestJet that we continue to provide safe, on-time air travel throughout Canada,” the company said in a post to its website. “We thank all WestJetters and our airport partners for their support during this time.”

The airline states in the post that guests with trips booked after June 5 through July 4 will be contacted “proactively” of their options.
