WestJet has confirmed the launch of daily direct flights this summer between Halifax Stanfield International Airport and London Gatwick.
It will also introduce flights between Halifax and Charles de Gaulle Airport in Paris as part of its summer schedule.
“Venturing to London and now Paris is an indication of our ambitious growth plans as we move towards becoming a global network carrier,” said Ed Sims, WestJet executive vice-president, commercial.
“This is an investment that will help launch new flights in the future and further expand our presence in Halifax – a key driver in economic and employment growth.”
Flights will be operated on Boeing 737-8 MAX aircraft. One-way intro fares on both routes are available now for $199.
Paris flights will start on May 31 and Gatwick flights start on April 29.
