CALGARY - WestJet Airlines (TSX:WJA) will begin flying to the Emerald Isle next summer — the airline's first transatlantic flights.
The airline says it will offer daily flights from Toronto, Ottawa and St. John's, N.L., to Dublin, Ireland from June 15 to Oct. 5.
It will also have daily connections between Dublin to several other cities, including Halifax, Montreal, Vancouver, Calgary, Edmonton and Winnipeg.
WestJet has also been trying to lure business flyers away from Air Canada (TSX:AC.B) with premium seating options and increased flexibility to change travel plans.
The new international flights follow WestJet's launch earlier this year of a regional service.
It rolled out its Encore service in June and now flies 42 flights a day to 12 destinations.
