WestJet inaugurates service from Halifax to Edinburgh

WestJet celebrated inaugural service between Halifax and Edinburgh on June 20 with the departure of WS46 from Halifax Stanfield International Airport (YHZ) scheduled for 10:35 p.m. local.

The new service marks an important milestone for the WestJet Group as it continues to bolster Halifax’s connectivity this summer.

Additionally, the airline celebrated the return of non-stop service between Halifax and Dublin on Wednesday, June 19.

“Further solidifying our position as Canada’s leading leisure airline, this flight is another milestone in our commitment to enhancing Atlantic Canada’s business and leisure ties through air connectivity,” said Andrew Gibbons, WestJet’s vice-president of external affairs. “With today’s inaugural service, we are thrilled to further strengthen the connection between Halifax and Edinburgh as we continue to expand strategic air access across the region.”

Earlier this year, WestJet Group CEO Alexis von Hoensbroech visited Halifax where he met with key stakeholders and community members to discussĀ the WestJet Group’s expanding presence across the region.
