Westjet has resumed flights from its hub at Calgary International airport to Paris CDG.

The weekly B787 Dreamliner service joins the carrier’s existing European flights from Calgary to Amsterdam and London Gatwick.

Both these routes are currently operating twice weekly, and are set to increase to three flights per week from September.

Westjet is also flying from Toronto and Vancouver to Gatwick – for more information on the carrier’s current international schedules, click here.

An existing codeshare with Air France has also resumed, allowing Westjet customers to connect to and from 16 European countries including Rome, Venice, Athens and Lisbon.

John Weatherill, Westjet’s chief commercial officer, said that Calgary to Paris was a key market for inbound tourism to Western Canada, adding:

“Alongside a successful vaccination rollout across Canada, we are proud to see this route return and will continue to invest in the economic recovery and growth of both Calgary and Alberta, following the Covid-19 pandemic.”
