Calgary-based WestJet will be offering two non-stop transatlantic flights on a year-round basis, giving travellers increased access to overseas destinations.
The flight services will begin in May, offering trips from Calgary and Toronto to London three times weekly as well as daily during the winter.
“Today’s announcement is another important step in the international expansion of WestJet,” WestJet Vice President Chris Avery said in a release.
“Year-round service to and from Europe on board our fleet of Boeing 767-300 extended-range aircraft offers our business and leisure guests the opportunity to take advantage of our low fares, high value and remarkable guest experience on both sides of the Atlantic whenever it suits their schedule.”
Current Vancouver, Winnipeg, St. John’s, and Edmonton services will continue with their regular services, which were confirmed in September 2015.
It currently costs $271 for a one-way flight from Toronto and $349 for a one-way flight from Calgary, including taxes, fees, and other charges.
