CALGARY — As it eyes more international expansion WestJet has crunched the numbers on some 70 worldwide destinations, including more cities in Europe as well as destinations in the South Pacific, according to The Globe and Mail.
According to the report, WestJet’s Executive Vice-President, Commercial, Bob Cummings, says the airline “wouldn’t have gotten into the [international] market if we didn’t believe that we will be successful and grow longer term, so we are going in with that assumption.”
WestJet’s flights to London, England are a test case; the B767-300 service starts next spring. Future options in Europe could include Amsterdam and Rome. In the South Pacific, destinations could include Tahiti and Fiji.
