PHOENIX -- WestJet will begin offering nonstop service between the Valley and Toronto in October, Phoenix Sky Harbor Airport said in a press release.

"Phoenix is dedicated to improving its international service," said Phoenix Mayor Greg Stanton in the release. "With WestJet Airline's new flight, we have a greater ability to grow both business and tourism with our friends in Toronto and all of Ontario."

But Phoenix officials aren't the only ones excited about the news.

"We are always looking for new and better ways to provide Canadians with in-demand destination choices," said Chris Avery, WestJet's vice president of network planning, alliances and corporate development. "After this winter of record storms and low temperatures, more Canadians than ever are looking for non-stop routes to sunny U.S. destinations like Phoenix to meet the demand for sunshine and tee times."

WestJet offers service to a total of nine Canadian cities from Phoenix.
