WestJet has added Barcelona to its growing presence in Europe with three-times weekly service between Toronto and Barcelona starting 24 May, 2019 through to 21 October, 2019.
The Canadian carrier will operate the route on a Boeing 767-300 ER aircraft, seating 262 passengers.
WestJet president and chief executive officer, Ed Sims said: “The addition of flights to Barcelona, an important European cruise hub, offers our business and leisure guests convenient flight times and one-stop flight connections from Canada via our Toronto hub.”
Greater Toronto Airports Authority vice president and chief strategy officer, Kim Stangeby welcomed the route: “International destinations continue to be in high demand for travellers in the region and we’re excited to be able to provide additional connectivity to this vibrant city.”
For summer 2019, WestJet will operate the following European services: London (Gatwick) service from Vancouver, Edmonton, Winnipeg and Toronto, service from Halifax to Glasgow, London and Paris and service between St. John’s and Dublin.
The announcement of Barcelona service comes on the heels of WestJet’s recent announcement of its first Dreamliner routes to Paris, London (Gatwick) and Dublin from Calgary.
