WestJet cutting flights to Atlantic Canada

WestJet

WestJet says it is indefinitely suspending operations to Moncton, N.B, Fredericton, Sydney, N.S., and Charlottetown, while significantly reducing service to Halifax and St. John's, N.L.

The airline is also suspending operations between Toronto and Quebec City.

 WestJet says the suspension eliminates more than 100 flights weekly starting Nov. 2.

 The airline says it has worked to keep essential air service going since the start of the pandemic, but demand for travel is being severely limited by restrictive policies.

 The airline also says it is laying off 100 corporate and operational support employees.

 The cuts do not include airport staff from the affected Atlantic airports due to an earlier restructuring
