After announcing new summer flights earlier this year, WestJet has more in store for Calgary!

According to the airline, they are expanding year-round service between Calgary and Tokyo, as well as Paris, and London.

These are part of WestJet’s enhancements to its transoceanic and leisure travel with its winter 787 schedule, they state.

“Our 787 winter schedule reflects the growing demand for year-round international options for business and leisure travellers from our global hub in Calgary to Asia, Europe, and North America,” said John Weatherill, WestJet Group Executive Vice-President and Chief Commercial Officer.

“We will continue to strategically position our Dreamliners to provide the best global access between Western Canada and the world.”

With its current existing summer seasonal service to Tokyo, WestJet is expanding to offer this throughout the year starting on October 27, 2024. As well, through WestJet’s codeshare agreement with Japan Airlines, travellers from Calgary will also have access to seven destinations beyond Tokyo.

“This winter, WestJet will fly more than 60,000 seats between Asia and Alberta, creating a catalyst for year-round collaboration between our two unique economies and tourism hubs,” said Weatherill. “This route has proven to be an exceptional conduit for transpacific leisure and business travellers connecting to Calgary and Alberta.”

Also later this year, there will be more flights from Calgary to Paris Charles-de-Gaulle International (CDG) and London Heathrow International (LHR) Airports. There will be flights to both cities daily starting on October 27, 2024.

And for those looking for more trips to warmer destinations, WestJet says it is deploying its 787 aircraft on some of its most in-demand leisure routes this winter.

It will be doubling its capacity between Calgary and Cancun to twice daily and increasing to daily service between Calgary and Puerto Vallarta. It will also continue to offer daily 787 service between Toronto and Cancun and three times weekly service between Calgary and Honolulu.

More flights to Cancun start on October 28th, while Puerto Vallarta’s daily flights start on November 11th, 2024.

Calgary to Honolulu will continue three times a week starting on November 16th.

Earlier this year, WestJet announced Calgary to Seoul (direct) flights which start on May 17th, and Calgary to Reykjavik (direct) service starts this week on May 15th.
