WestJet takes flight for the City of Lights

June 2, 2018


WestJet commenced flights between Halifax (YHZ) and Paris CDG (CDG) on 31 May, with the French capital becoming the airline’s first destination in mainland Europe. “This is a historic moment for WestJet as we touch down on the European mainland for the first time,” said Tim Croyle, Interim EVP, Commercial, WestJet. “This new service reinforces our confidence in Atlantic Canada and our ongoing support of Nova Scotia’s tourism and economic development objectives outlined in its Atlantic Gateway initiative. Paris is the latest milestone chapter in WestJet’s drive to become a truly global airline, bringing Canada to the world and the world to Canada.”


This is the second transatlantic service to launch with the airline from Halifax in recent weeks, with a route to London Gatwick having begun on 29 April. Halifax is also linked to Glasgow by the airline. The 4,870-kilometre transatlantic service to Paris will be served by WestJet daily using its fleet of 737 MAX 8s, with this being the only non-stop operation between Halifax and Europe’s second busiest airport. Halifax is no stranger to the departures board of Paris CDG, having being connected to the city courtesy of Europe Airpost (ASL Airlines France) which flew between the two airports on a weekly basis via Dublin in the summer seasons of 2015, 2016 and 2017.
