CALGARY, May 6, 2012 /CNW/ - estJet today announced the launch of new,
non-stop seasonal service between Toronto and Aruba, Netherlands
Antilles. The inaugural flight departs Toronto's Pearson International

"Without a doubt, Aruba is one of the most beautiful and culturally
fascinating islands in the Caribbean," said John MacLeod, WestJet
Vice-President, Network Management and Alliances. "With an average
daily temperature of about 30 degrees, clear skies and cooling trade
winds, the climate is perfect for a vacation at any time of the year.

of WestJet from Canada's largest airport."
