WestJet this week launched daily Quebec City-Montreal service, the airline's first non-stop flight within the province of Quebec, operating four flights daily between Montréal–Pierre Elliott Trudeau International Airport and Quebec City's Jean Lesage International Airport.

The new route is the second of three the airline announced earlier this year – bringing more choice, competition and lower fares to the Quebec market. On March 15, WestJet launched twice-daily service between Montreal and Halifax and on October 15, WestJet will begin twice-daily service between Montreal and Boston. Overall, the airline is adding 105 more flights per week in the province, a capacity increase of 74%.

The Quebec-City/Montreal route is operated by WestJet's regional airline, WestJet Encore, on its fleet of Canadian-made Bombardier Q400s.
