We celebrated the arrival of WestJet into Fort St. John. It was June 27, 2012 that a team of us from this community travelled to the WestJet headquarters in Calgary to convince them that "It Just Makes Sense!" to provide service to Fort St. John. So almost one year to the day, it was truly exciting to see them touchdown at YXJ for the first time.
The arrival of WestJet provides more service and more options to each one of us. This is also a good indicator of the confidence companies like this have in the continued economic growth in our region. Already, WestJet has created 16 jobs at the North Peace Airport at both the check-in counter and baggage handling.
