“In advancing that commitment, every step, every new destination, counts towards solidifying YYC’s role and status as a global hub.”

According to WestJet, The exclusive service, linking the Group’s global hub in Calgary to Iceland, not only bolsters the airline’s efforts to enhance YYC Calgary International Airport’s connectivity but reinforces the city’s standing as the best-connected mid-sized city in North America.
