CALGARY — WestJet is tripling down on Europe with new seasonal three-times weekly service between Toronto and Barcelona next year.
Starting May 24, 2019 and running until Oct. 21, 2019, the new nonstop flights “will provide even more access between Canada and Europe as we continue to expand our international network,” said Ed Sims, WestJet President and CEO. “The addition of flights to Barcelona, an important European cruise hub, offers our business and leisure guests convenient flight times and one-stop flight connections from Canada via our Toronto hub.”
Toronto-Barcelona will be operated on WestJet’s Boeing 767-300ER aircraft, seating 262 guests and featuring Premium and Economy cabins.
For summer 2019, WestJet will operate the following European service: London (Gatwick) service from Vancouver, Edmonton, Winnipeg and Toronto, service from Halifax to Glasgow, London and Paris, and service between St. John’s and Dublin.
The news about Barcelona service comes on the heels of WestJet’s recent announcement of its first Dreamliner routes to Paris, London (Gatwick) and Dublin from Calgary.
