WestJet today announced it will be adding Roatán, Honduras to its Caribbean destinations with its new non-stop seasonal service from Toronto starting December 15.
"With the addition of the snorkelling paradise of Roatán to our network, WestJet guests now have convenient access to 14 Caribbean destinations non-stop from Toronto this winter," said Arved von zur Muehlen, WestJet Chief Commercial Officer. "Roatán is home to miles of coastline featuring barrier reefs, white sand beaches and turquoise waters and is a bucket list getaway that we can't wait for our guests to explore starting this December."
"We congratulate WestJet on this new service to the beautiful island of Roatán," said Scott Collier, Vice President of Customer and Terminal Services, Greater Toronto Airports Authority (GTAA). "Toronto Pearson is proud to be a part of WestJet's continued growth and we are sure our passengers will be excited to discover this part of the world, thanks to WestJet."
"We at the Bay Islands Tourism Bureau are so happy to know WestJet will be servicing Roatán as we love to see our friends from the north visit and look forward to working with the premier Canadian airline," said Mike Carter, Vice-President, Bay Islands Tourism Bureau. "From the beginning of our talks, all the way through the process, the cooperation and communication from all involved has been amazing. A special thanks to our political and business stakeholders and the entire WestJet team as we have the foundation of a great partnership for growth and service."
The new service will be operated on WestJet's Boeing 737 aircraft featuring the airline's Premium and Economy cabins. Flights are timed to optimize connectivity to WestJet's Toronto hub and provide for WestJet Rewards accumulation and redemption along with additional benefits for WestJet Rewards top tier members.
