WestJet announced today it will launch new, twice-daily service between London, Ontario, and Toronto Pearson International Airport on board WestJet Encore’s fleet of Canadian-made Bombardier Q400 NextGen aircraft beginning in March 2016.
The new service opens up 52 new WestJet destinations and 47 new codeshare destinations via Toronto Pearson to Eastern Canada, the United States, Caribbean, Mexico and Europe.
“London has been an important part of WestJet’s network for more than a decade but before today’s announcement, we could only offer Londoners service to and from the west as well as a few sun destinations,” said Chris Avery, WestJet Vice-President, Network Planning, Alliances and Corporate Development.
“Now, the rest of WestJet’s ever-expanding network is available for London travellers – all with a simple and convenient connection in Toronto.”
Serving London since 2002, in the summer WestJet operates twice daily service to Calgary and daily service to Winnipeg. In the winter the airline flies to Calgary daily as well as once weekly to Orlando and Cancun.
