Adding onto the topic linked below, westjet has officially announced their service to London-Heathrow!
The airline has NOT announced a start date for these flights, but it will be operated by their Boeing 787-9, which is currently used on their YYZ and YYC flights.
The Heathrow service will only be flying from Calgary. The Toronto to London will continue to serve Gatwick.
“As the airline with the most flights from Alberta, this is an important recovery milestone as we forge new connections between Canada and one of the world’s most sought after global hubs. We continue to strengthen our network, offering more options for business and leisure travellers and these investments will expedite our industry’s recovery while ensuring Western Canada builds back from the pandemic more connected than ever before.”
I am excited to see this expansion in Europe on one of Canadas largest airlines! This is a big step to challenging Air Canada across the Atlantic.
