WestJet Encore Lands at YVR

WestJet recently launched its regional service to smaller communities in Western Canada with the WestJet Encore brand.

Arriving at YVR and departing daily from Fort. John and Victoria, Encore flights will use a Bombardier Q400 aircraft as seen above. The photo above was snapped on the very first day of service at YVR.

Flight codes will still use the WS prefix and will operate exclusively out of A & B gates in the Domestic Terminal.

In true WestJet fashion, WestJetters celebrated with a launch event for the first arrival on June 24, complete with prizes and cake for all passengers in the gate area.
