WestJet to launch service between DFW and Calgary in April

Add another international carrier to Dallas/Fort Worth Airport's list of airlines.

On Monday, WestJet Airlines announced it will launch daily non-stop service between DFW and Calgary on April 29, with seasonal service for the spring and summer.

The Canadian low-cost carrier is the seventh new carrier to add service to DFW in the past two years.

"There is a strong connection between these two western markets, stemming in part from the business ties within the energy sectors of both countries," said WesetJet chief executive Gregg Saretsky.

WestJet did not say what kind of aircraft it will use on the route although it only has Boeing 737-600s, 737-700s and 737-800s in its fleet.
