WestJet announced Dublin, Ireland, as the airline’s first transatlantic destination with seasonal daily service from June 15, 2014, to October 5, 2014, with non-stop flights to Dublin from St. John’s, Newfoundland, direct (same-aircraft) flights from Toronto and connections from across WestJet’s network.
Highlights of the new service include:
All Dublin service will operate using WestJet’s Boeing Next-Generation 737-700 series aircraft.
“It is an exciting time for WestJet as we bring our unique brand of low fares and award-winning guest experience to a whole new market,” said Chris Avery, WestJet Vice-President, Network Planning, Alliances and Corporate Development. “WestJet’s innovative foray into the European market represents a willingness to do what it takes to connect Canadians to the world while bringing the world to Canada. From Dublin, guests can access low-cost flights to more than 100 cities in Europe.”
WestJet’s first transatlantic route will cut the current travel time from St. John’s to Dublin by nearly half, and in just about the same time it takes to fly from Toronto to Calgary, guests are able to experience ancient castles, cobblestone roads, and the Cliffs of Moher.
