WestJet to Fly from Dublin to Halifax Instead of St John’s

WestJet to Fly from Dublin to Halifax Instead of St John’s

WestJet will launch a new daily summer service from Dublin to Halifax, Nova Scotia, from next April, but is discontinuing its existing summer service to St John’s, Newfoundland.

The move will increase WestJet’s capacity from Ireland to Atlantic Canada by 27%, as the Halifax service will be operated by a new B737-MAX aircraft. The Halifax flights will be timed to optimise connections with WestJet’s services to central Canada and the Atlantic provinces.

Vincent Harrison, Managing Director, Dublin Airport, said: “Canada has been a really strong market for Dublin Airport in recent years, with excellent business and leisure traffic, and this expansion will help it grow even further. Additional capacity will generate more tourism visitors for Ireland and further enhance the already strong business and trade links between Ireland and Canada.”

The Halifax-Dublin service will operate from 29th April 2019 until 25th October 2019. Last month WestJet announced that it would operate a new three times weekly Calgary-Dublin service next summer.
