WestJet released details of its new non-stop service to London’s Heathrow Airport (LHR) from Calgary International Airport.
The new route provides access to London’s largest airport with close and rapid access to important destinations in London.
Flights between the two global hubs are set to operate four-times weekly, beginning March 26, 2022 and are available to book on www.WestJet.com .
John Weatherill, WestJet Chief Commercial Officer, said: “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.”
Weatherill continued: “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
And he added: “We are committed to the expansion of our global hub in Calgary and supporting the recovery of many sectors who rely on travel and tourism. As the airline with the most non-stop European destinations from YYC, we are looking forward to guests benefitting from more options and increased connectivity for travel between Canada and the UK.”
With the addition of Heathrow to WestJet’s network this spring, WestJet will connect Calgary to 77 non-stop destinations throughout the year; and it will also continue to offer non-stop flights between Calgary, Vancouver, Toronto and Halifax to London, Gatwick.
