Canadian low-cost carrier WestJet will expand its route network to include Denver on 8 March 2018, when it launches flights to the city from Calgary, WestJet announces.

The carrier will operate flights once daily between Denver and Calgary using Boeing 737s, according to the company and flight schedules.

In announcing the news, WestJet notes that Colorado is Canada's largest trading partner and that Canada is the second largest foreign investor in Colorado.

Currently, nearly 150 people travel daily between the cities, according to Calgary-based WestJet.

WestJet will compete with United Airlines, which flies up to four times daily between Calgary and Denver using a mix of Airbus A319s, Boeing 737s, Bombardier CRJ200s and Embraer 175s, according to flight schedules.
