WestJet not Castlegar-bound

If WestJet does start to fly in to Castlegar one day, it won’t be soon.

Further to a story appearing in the June 26 edition of the Castlegar News on the chances of a new carrier at the West Kootenay Regional Airport, the airline’s media rep had this to inform, via email on July 3: “We are indeed unveiling our schedule for winter 2014-2015 later this month but as you know we’re on record as taking WestJet Encore eastward this year following our launch in the west in 2013. Afraid I don’t have anything to share with regard to Castlegar right now, sorry.”
