Westjet in Calgary (Photo: DR) It’s a

modest return, but a return non

etheless.

Since August 20, the Canadian carrier Westjet has been offering a weekly flight between Calgary – the capital of the province of Alberta – and Paris CDG. Every Sunday until the end of October, a Boeing 787 Dreamliner of the company will fly between the two cities.

The Westjet Dreamliner offers a three-class cabin service, including Business, Premium Economy and Classic Economy.

“We are delighted to resume this historic route between Calgary and Paris, reconnecting these two cities and providing easier travel opportunities to Europe for Western Canadians,” said John Weatherill, WestJet’s Chief Commercial Officer.

“The Calgary-Paris route is a key market for Western Canadian tourism. As such, we are proud to see the return of this route and will continue to invest in the economic recovery and growth of Calgary and Alberta, post-Covid-19″, he added.

Paris is the third city in Europe that Westjet is serving again. At CDG, passengers enjoy code-share to 16 European cities served by Air France

.

At the beginning of August, Westjet had already resumed its services to London and Amsterdam with two weekly flights each. From 10 September, a third flight will complete the offer to Amsterdam. Westjet is also code-sharing with KLM to 18 European cities including the French regional capitals.
