WestJet has announced the addition of several new routes, including Barcelona out of Toronto.
Three-times weekly, non-stop service between Toronto and Barcelona will start May 24 and run through Oct. 21.
“In summer 2019 WestJet will provide even more access between Canada and Europe as we continue to expand our international network,” said WestJet president and CEO Ed Sims. “The addition of flights to Barcelona, an important European cruise hub, offers our business and leisure guests convenient flight times and one-stop flight connections from Canada via our Toronto hub.”
The Spanish Tourism Office is very happy about the new flight with Laura Pena Alberdi, Spanish Tourism office director, commenting, “This new destination non-stop from Toronto will give WestJet’s clients the possibility of visiting this beautiful Mediterranean and cosmopolitan city, with its rich history and art marvels. We are certain Canadians will also enjoy Barcelona as a gateway to other incredible sites and cities in Spain.”
WestJet’s Toronto-Barcelona service will be operated on its Boeing 767-300 ER aircraft, seating 262 guests and featuring the airline’s Premium and Economy cabins.
For Calgarians, WestJet also announced new service to Atlanta (Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport) starting March 3. The airline will fly six times weekly between Calgary and Atlanta, moving to daily on April 7.
WestJet has also announced the addition of non-stop service from St. John’s to Fort Lauderdale this winter. Service is available on a limited basis from March 11 through May 13.
