CALGARY — WestJet’s nonstop service between Calgary and Paris is flying high once again.
Flight 10 on WestJet’s 787 Dreamliner took off from Calgary International Airport on Aug. 20.
WestJet is the only airline to operate the nonstop route. WestJet is also now the airline with the most European destinations offered direct from its Calgary base. WestJet introduced twice-weekly, nonstop, service between Calgary and Amsterdam on August 5 and is currently serving London (Gatwick) two times weekly. Both routes are expected to increase to three times weekly in September.
“We are thrilled to bring back this historic route between Calgary and Paris, reconnecting these two incredible cities and providing easy and unique travel opportunities throughout Europe for Western Canadians,” said John Weatherill, WestJet Chief Commercial Officer.
The airline notes that the return of its Calgary-Paris nonstops also restores WestJet’s codeshare partnership with Air France. The codeshare gives Canadian business and leisure travellers seamless connections to and from 16 cities in Europe, including Rome, Venice, Athens and Lisbon. Passengers connecting through Air France can earn WestJet Dollars throughout their entire journey.
From Calgary, flights will operate once weekly through Oct. 29. On the return, once-weekly flights from Paris run through Oct. 31.
