London Heathrow welcomes WestJet's first flight from Calgary.....

Yesterday saw the inaugural flight from Calgary International Airport to London's Heathrow Airport land slightly ahead of schedule at 11:38, which complements WestJet's flights to London-Gatwick.

WestJet's Boeing 787's will be offering up to nine times weekly service between Calgary and London this summer, marking much greater connectivity between the UK and Alberta. Jyoti Gondek, Mayor of Calgary said: "Having direct flight access to Heathrow, enhancing connectivity to London, a global capital market and business hub will further enhance Alberta's competitiveness for investment and trade. This is also the latest signal to global investors of confidence in Alberta's economy and economic recovery.  We look forward to putting these flights to good use bringing investors and business to our province who will bring with them capital and jobs for Albertans."

"We are pleased to provide our guests travelling to London for business and leisure with greater choice and convenience as we celebrate our inaugural flight to Heathrow Airport," said Chris Hedlin, WestJet Vice-President, Network & Alliances. "This new route not only strengthens Alberta's travel and tourism pipeline but creates new opportunities for our guests to benefit from access to one of the most connected global aviation hubs." 

"We look forward to providing Canadians and Europeans with enhanced connectivity from Western Canada as we further our commitment to supporting the economic recovery of inbound tourism on both sides of the Atlantic," continued Hedlin.
