WestJet is adding a new another connection across the Atlantic into the United Kingdom with new non-stop service between Halifax and Manchester beginning June 5.
This summer, WestJet will operate more than 300 seasonal departures from Halifax to London (Gatwick) and Glasgow, Scotland.
“WestJet is continuing to invest in our Atlantic gateway, connecting Nova Scotia to the world and the world to Nova Scotia in new ways,” said Charles Duncan, WestJet chief strategy officer. “The UK is Nova Scotia’s largest in-bound tourism market and our newest investment connects the province to new sources of tourists.”
Manchester Airport is considered the global gateway to northern England and offers easy access to and from its historic city centre.
WestJet’s seasonal service will operate four times weekly on the airline’s Boeing 737-700.
