Not The Palm Springs Airport!WestJet announced this week that it will begin additional service to Palm Springs International Airport from Winnipeg, Canada. My thinking is that this is a great public service that should help to warm Canadian’s up during the coming winter.

The new flights are in addition to seasonal flights already flying from Vancouver, Calgary, Edmonton and Toronto.

Service from Winnipeg will start December 15th with fares from $219. Flights to WestJet’s hub in Calgary will be increased to two daily round-trips during the peak tourist season.

In the Palm Springs market alone WestJet has seen the number of passengers it serves rise to 120,205 in the first six months of 2011.

Will keep the sunscreen out for you!
