Saint John Airport Says Smaller WestJet Planes Are Good For City

With WestJet's considering the launch of a short-haul regional airline next year, the President of the Saint John Airport says the city could look like an attractive location for them.

WestJet would use 40 smaller turboprop plans and Bernie LeBlanc tells CHSJ News those would fit the size of our market much better.

He believes the announcement is good for the city.

WestJet operated out of the Saint John Airport for 4 years.

LeBlanc did not indicate whether the announcement would actually mark the return of WestJet to the city.
