TORONTO — WestJet is adding two more repatriation flights in an effort to bring home nearly 350 Canadians home from San Salvador and Port of Spain.

Both flights are due to return over the next few days.

This weekend, WestJet will be bringing home 346 Canadians from two other repatriation flights from Havana, Cuba and Port of Spain, Trinidad and Tobago to Toronto.

In just over a week, from March 17 to March 25, the WestJet group of companies, including Swoop, carried roughly 100,000 Canadians from international and transborder locations.
