Creating a gateway for business and leisure travel opportunities, WestJet Encore's service to Terrace, will provide a convenient connection to WestJet's home and largest global hub in Calgary where the airline will operate more than 800 flights per week, to more than 65 destinations around the world, in December.

"We are thrilled to provide increased capacity to support Terrace and Western B.C.'s critical projects and expanding industries," said John Weatherill, Chief Commercial Officer.
