WestJet will add Glasgow as its newest European destination, introducing daily non-stop flights from Halifax beginning May 29, 2015, with direct (same-aircraft) service from Toronto, operated on one of the airline’s Boeing Next-Generation 737-700 series aircraft.
The new daily non-stop seasonal flights between Halifax and Glasgow will operate from May 29, 2015 to Oct. 23, 2015. Daily connections will be available between Glasgow via Halifax or Toronto to Montreal, Ottawa, Winnipeg, Calgary, Edmonton, Vancouver and 16 other cities in WestJet’s Canadian network.
Bob Cummings, WestJet executive vice-president, sales, marketing and guest experience, said, “This year’s launch of service to Dublin has proved popular with existing transatlantic flyers and with new guests alike, thanks to market growth driven by drastically reduced fares. Fares to Glasgow will be as much as fifty per cent off existing prices, so we’ll once again grow the market. Increased European operational and marketing experience is important as we count the months until four Boeing 767-300ERW aircraft join our fleet to further grow our network.”
WestJet said that it expects its new flights to be popular with Nova Scotians visiting family and friends, Canadian visitors looking for a uniquely Scottish experience and with British guests travelling to Canada.
