Canadian carrier WestJet has announced Dublin Ireland as the airline´s first transatlantic destination with seasonal daily service from June 15 2014 to October 5 2014.
The carrier said it will launch non-stop flights to Dublin from St. John´s Newfoundland direct (same-aircraft) flights from Toronto and connections from across WestJet´s network.
WestJet said that its 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.
The carrier offers scheduled service to 88 destinations in North America, Central America, the Caribbean and Europe. WestJet operates a fleet of more than 100 Boeing (NYSE: BA) Next-Generation 737 and Bombardier (TSX: BBD-B) Q400 NextGen aircraft.
