WestJet is to add to Gatwick’s Canadian destinations next year. Air Transat already serves Calgary, Halifax, Montreal, Toronto and Vancouver and has done so for many years. WestJet is Canada’s second largest airline and recently introduced services from Glasgow to Halifax (See BTN 8 June).
Gregg Saretsky, CEO of WestJet, said: “London Gatwick is the ideal airport for our first transatlantic wide-body destination. WestJet needs more well-managed and efficient airports like Gatwick to continue to offer the best fares available for our guests. As we look at more international destinations as part of our growth strategy, we will look to airports who share our passion for efficient, low-cost travel combined with a remarkable guest experience. We look forward to, this summer, announcing our entire wide-body schedule and low fares for the spring of 2016." www.westjet.com
