WestJet to launch flights to Halifax

WestJet is set to launch direct flights between Edinburgh and Halifax in June.

The new service will operate each week on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays from June to September.

WestJet is also adding Toronto and resuming its Calgary service. 

Flights to Toronto will be daily, while services to Calgary will be four times per week. These routes will operate from May to October. 

Gordon Dewar, Chief Executive of Edinburgh Airport, said: “WestJet’s decision to make Edinburgh Airport its home in Scotland is incredibly exciting, especially as they grow their presence in Scotland’s capital and we look forward to working with them to make these routes a success.

“By offering three Canadian destinations from Edinburgh, we will now be able to offer passengers our biggest ever North American programme for summer 2024 and we are confident people will grasp that opportunity to experience Canada and the USA.”

Daniel Fajardo, Vice-President of Network and Schedule Planning at WestJet, added: “This summer, WestJet will offer non-stop service to Edinburgh from Halifax, Calgary and Toronto and we are confident this enhanced connectivity between Edinburgh and three major Canadian hubs will further strengthen the two-way business and tourism pipeline between Canada and Scotland.”
