Canada's WestJet has won eight slot pairs at New York LaGuardia airport in an auction held by the US Federal Aviation Administration (FAA).
The airline will release details on flight schedules at a later date.
The auction, which allowed airlines in US and Canada to bid on 16 slot pairs at LaGuardia and eight slot pairs at Washington Ronald Reagan National airport, was a result of a slot swap between US Airways and Delta Air Lines approved by the US Department of Transportation (DOT).
The DOT required the divestiture of the slot pairs at the two airports to ensure competition.
"We are very pleased with our successful bid," said Gregg Saretsky, WestJet President and CEO. "Our growth plans, in which increased business travel in the East figures prominently, includes New York City, Canada's largest international business market and we look forward to providing our guests with frequent, year-round service to the core of the Big Apple."
