Canadian low-cost carrier WestJet will launch seasonal flights to four new destinations in Latin America and the Caribbean from October.

The carrier will begin twice weekly flights between Toronto Pearson and Antigua and Barbuda, and weekly flights between Toronto and Curacao from 28 October. It will launch twice-weekly Toronto-Liberia (Costa Rica) flights from 29 October and weekly flights between Calgary and Manzanillo (Mexico) from 2 November.

WestJet operates Boeing 737 aircraft.

"The addition of these new sun destinations as part of our 2012-2013 winter schedule demonstrates our ongoing strategic focus on expanding our offerings within the popular sun destination market," says John MacLeod, WestJet vice-president, alliances, strategy and chief network officer.

In addition, WestJet will switch its seasonal Toronto-Kingston (Jamaica) service to year-round, and increase the frequency of its Toronto-Aruba service to twice weekly from weekly currently.

Air Canada operates twice weekly between Toronto and Antigua and Barbuda, schedules in Innovata show. American Airlines offers one-stop service six times weekly between Toronto and Liberia. No airline operates between Toronto and Curacao, or between Calgary and Manzanillo currently.
