GREATER MONCTON, NB, February 7, 2024 – The Greater Moncton Roméo LeBlanc International Airport (YQM) is very pleased to announce the resumption of the Toronto route by WestJet for the summer of 2024.

Starting on May 17, the airline will fly from Greater Moncton (YQM) to Toronto Pearson (YYZ) twice weekly, on Mondays and Fridays, increasing to three times weekly in June and to five times weekly during the summer peak.

“It is great news for the region to have WestJet resume the YQM to YYZ route for this upcoming summer,” said the Greater Moncton International Airport Authority’s President and CEO, Courtney Burns. “In 2023, YQM welcomed 600,121 passengers, representing 89% of our 2019 passenger count. Our recovery is going well and the addition of new routes by our airline partners is a contributing factor helping us reach our pre-COVID passenger levels.”

This WestJet flight contributes to YQM’s comprehensive array of flights to Ontario and Alberta during the peak tourism season including:

  • Air Canada to Toronto Pearson (YYZ) – twice daily
  • Porter Airlines to Ottawa (YOW) – once daily (going up to twice daily starting in April 2024)
  • Porter Airlines to Billy Bishop Toronto Island (YTZ) – once daily
  • WestJet to Calgary and Edmonton as many times as 7 days per week. We anticipate that the airline’s peak summer schedule with direct non-stop flights to Edmonton and Calgary will be released soon.
