A third Canadian carrier has secured London landing slots.
WestJet has announced plans for a new service between its home base Calgary and Heathrow in competition with Air Canada.
The airline said that details including frequency, timing and introductory pricing “will be available, and for sale, in the coming weeks.” It is Canada’s second largest airline behind Air Canada and operates three-class Boeing 787 Dreamliners.
The route will represent the carrier’s first transatlantic flights to Heathrow, and will join the airline’s existing services from Calgary to Gatwick and also from Toronto to both Edinburgh and Glasgow (see BTN 20 September).
Westjet will be competing with Air Canada between Calgary and Heathrow, with the flag carrier having resumed service on the route in September.
Last month Westjet announced plans for a new seasonal service between Toronto and Dublin starting in summer 2022.
