SYDNEY, NS - Cape Breton Regional Municipality Mayor Cecil Clarke said he welcomes WestJet's announcement today of an Atlantic Canada expansion.
As part of WestJet's Atlantic Canada expansion, a daily flight between Sydney and Halifax will offer an introductory one way fare of $119 and a return fare of $239. WestJet's Bombardier Q400 planes seat over 70 passengers. This new flight is in addition to the airline's seasonal jet service to Sydney.
"Affordable air transport to and from Cape Breton is an economic necessity. Realistic airfares can make Cape Breton more competitive when it comes to conventions, special events and tourism overall," said Clarke. "This new daily flight to Halifax is a big step forward for our region and strengthens Sydney's connection to the WestJet network."

As we enter the third year of our mandate, we can look back at two distinct phases. The first full year, 2013, was the beginning of the positive change plan. That included holding a port summit, establishing a five-year capital plan and budget consultation tours.
Residents clearly said job creation, working with other levels of government and port development are top priorities for the Cape Breton Regional Municipality.
This past year was a shoulder-to-the-wheel year. Significant effort has gone into the top priorities, including promoting the Port of Sydney. We are now seeing positive outcomes.
