CALGARY — WestJet has more route details about its new nonstop service to London’s Heathrow Airport (LHR) from Calgary.
Flights on the new route, first announced last month, are set to operate four times weekly starting March 26, 2022. Tickets are now available for sale.
Heathrow-bound flights from Calgary will operate Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Fridays and Saturdays from March 26 – Oct. 28, 2022.
On the return leg, flights will depart Heathrow on Wednesdays, Thursdays, Saturdays and Sundays, from March 27 – Oct. 29, 2022.
With the addition of Heathrow to WestJet’s network this spring, WestJet will connect Calgary to 77 nonstop destinations throughout the year.
WestJet will also continue to offer nonstop flights between Calgary, Vancouver, Toronto and Halifax to London, Gatwick.
“As the airline with the most flights from Alberta, this is an important recovery milestone as we forge new connections between Canada and one of the world’s most sought-after global hubs,” said John Weatherill, WestJet Chief Commercial Officer.
“We continue to strengthen our network, offering more options for business and leisure travellers and these investments will expedite our industry’s recovery while ensuring Western Canada builds back from the pandemic more connected than ever before,” he added.
The route will operate on the airline’s 787 Dreamliner. WestJet’s 787 service features the airline’s Business Cabin including lie-flat pods, dining on demand and elevated Premium and Economy Cabin options.
Weatherill said WestJet is committed to the expansion of its global hub in Calgary “and supporting the recovery of many sectors who rely on travel and tourism. As the airline with the most non-stop European destinations from YYC, we are looking forward to guests benefitting from more options and increased connectivity for travel between Canada and the UK.”
