WestJet is ramping up its Dreamliner flights for next summer.

Following the addition of the new Boeing Dreamliner 787-9 airliners this past year, WestJet has announced that it will be acquiring even more of the planes, resulting in an increase in service for customers in Calgary, Toronto, and Vancouver.

“As we welcome new 787 deliveries, we continue to showcase WestJet’s award-winning guest experience to the world,” said Arved von zur Muehlen, WestJet chief commercial officer, in a release.

“Our Dreamliner service is unique to WestJet and through increased domestic and transatlantic connections we’re able to offer Canadians and visitors a superior experience whether travelling for business or leisure.”

The new 2020 schedule will include: Earlier Dreamliner service between London, Gatwick and Calgary, operating daily as of April 14, 2020; domestic year-round 787 service between Calgary and Toronto beginning in June; and a restart to transatlantic Dreamliner service between Paris and Calgary by March 12, 2020.

The additional flights come courtesy of three new airplanes, bringing the airline’s total to six. The airline may choose to acquire a possible 20 aircraft down the line.

Here’s a look at the new schedule for summer of 2020:
