We are proud our signature aircraft is now flying non-stop service between two of Canada’s major cities and two of our hub airports.”
Robyn McVicker, vice-president, operations & maintenance, Vancouver Airport Authority, said: “We are thrilled to welcome WestJet’s newest aircraft, the state-of-the-art 787 Dreamliner, to YVR for the first time. We greatly value our long-time partner WestJet and the introduction of this signature aircraft at YVR is an example of their ongoing investment in British Columbia.”
