WestJet continues its European expansion........

WestJet continues Dreamliner momentum with the first Calgary-Paris service


Fresh from the news that the airline is about to be sold to Toronto based investment firm Onex, WestJet continues its rapid expansion into the transatlantic market with passion.

The Canadian airline became the only airline to operate a non-stop route between Paris and Calgary this week with a new Dreamliner service. The airline's newest route, along with its codeshare partnership with Air France, provides historic new access between Western Canada and Europe. Canadian business and leisure travellers now can fly to and from 11 cities in  Europe including Rome, Venice, Athens and Lisbon through WestJet's Air France codeshare partnership from Paris. 

"WestJet's first non-stop flight from Calgary to Paris opens up a key market for inbound tourism to Western Canada and easy and unique travel opportunities throughout Europe for Western Canadians," said Arved von zur Muehlen, WestJet Chief Commercial Officer. 



All flights between Calgary and Paris are operated on WestJet's newest aircraft, the 320-seat, 787-9 Dreamliner featuring WestJet's business, premium and economy cabins.
