The distance between Winnipeg and Regina is starting to shrink.
Not literally, of course, but those travelling between the two prairie cities will have another option to for getting around. Wednesday, WestJet will fire up the engines on its regional air service -- Encore -- with daily direct flights between the Manitoba and Saskatchewan capitals.
The announcement ends a five-year hiatus of the service.
It’s expected WestJet will announce daily flights between Winnipeg and Saskatoon in the future, possibly as early as next month.
