WestJet is upping its winter service from Grande Prairie to Calgary. Flights between the Swan City and Cowtown will be increased from 19 to 26 times a week.
The move comes six months after the airline dropped a flight each way between GP and Edmonton. At the time, it was blamed on less demand to energy-based markets due to the downturn in the economy.
Starting in November, four direct flights to Calgary will leave the Grande Prairie Airport a day on weekdays. Sunday will have three flights, with two on Saturdays. That increases to three as it gets closer to the Christmas holiday.
