WestJet brings seasonal transatlantic service back to Halifax

WestJet is bringing transatlantic service back to Halifax, with scheduled summer service to London, Dublin and Edinburgh, with the carrier’s strategic investments unlocking new potential for Halifax’s business, leisure and tourism economies.

Andrew Gibbons, vice-president external affairs for WestJet, said: “In service of our valued relationship with the province, airport, partners and guests, we are thrilled to resume service between Halifax and Europe, strengthening the region’s critical connections to global hubs, tourism and business economies.”

Gibbons said that the announcement “reaffirms our commitment to the city of Halifax and surrounding region, bringing to life our promise of bolstering leisure travel options in Atlantic Canada and further connecting our guests with the people and places they love most.”

As the WestJet Group grows its position as Canada’s leading leisure airline, from coast-to-coast, WestJet’s resumption of service between Atlantic Canada and Europe will increase the capacity of the critical tourism pipeline between Nova Scotia and Europe.
