WestJet’s schedule from mid-July to early September includes three daily flights from Halifax to Toronto, and daily flights from Halifax to Calgary and St. John’s.

Flights will also originate from Charlottetown, Sydney, Deer Lake, Moncton and Fredericton.

The airline released a new schedule on Monday that includes more than 200 daily flights to 48 destinations across Canada, the U.S., the Caribbean, Mexico and Europe.

“With the many safeguards and procedures in place, we are certain Canadians can safely resume travel to destinations across our network,” Arved von zur Muehlen, WestJet Chief Commercial Officer, said in a release. “We continue to adapt our schedule to meet the needs of our guests and through our continued investments economies can begin to recover with the support of domestic tourism driven by air travel.”

The August schedule reflects about a ten per cent increase in flying from July, but a decrease of 75 per cent from last August.
