John Weatherill, WestJet Group’s executive vice president and chief commercial officer, said: “Halifax remains an integral part of our network and we understand this is disappointing news for our guests and the local community.
“As we continue to responsibly balance our schedule alongside operational requirements, capacity constraints and the deployment of our aircraft across Canada, we are making these difficult decisions now to enable us to re-position our investments to best serve the province for years to come.”
