WestJet is celebrating carrying guests for the first time to the snorkeling and diving paradise of Roatán, Honduras following yesterday’s inaugural flight between Toronto and Roatán.
“With our new seasonal non-stop service guests can now enjoy a superior travel experience when flying to this Caribbean paradise,” said Arved von zur Muelhen, WestJet Chief Commercial Officer. “These flights strengthen tourism ties and are a win for leisure travellers looking to explore Roatán’s beautiful barrier reefs and white sand beaches.”
With convenient access to 14 Caribbean destinations non-stop from Toronto this winter, WestJet’s new service to Roatán is operated on the airline’s Boeing 737 aircraft featuring WestJet’s Premium and Economy cabins.
“In the last five years, there has been a 60 per cent increase in the number of Canadians travelling to Roatán,” said Alexander Leon, Trade Commissioner, Canadian Embassy for Costa Rica, Honduras and Nicaragua. “Tourism is one of the sectors that most directly and positively affects the well-being of people of the local community. Congratulations to WestJet on opening this new flight from Toronto to Roatán that will bring great benefits to Hondurans and Canadians alike.”
