Westjet 787-9

In October 2022 The WestJet Group and the Government of Alberta announced a first of its kind partnership, in developing Alberta’s aviation sector collaboratively. The carrier  designated YYC Calgary International Airport as its single global connecting hub and will concentrate all intercontinental 787 Dreamliner flying in Calgary.

This summer Westjet will operate 52 weekly roundtrips between Kelowna and its Calgary Hub enabling connections onto its long-haul route network including Barcelona, Dublin, Edinburgh, London, Paris CDG and Rome.

The carrier operates eight times daily between Calgary and Kelowna enabling efficient connection times onto its European route network.

Westjet will boost capacity on Calgary to Dublin by 95% this summer operating five times weekly commencing 30 April using Boeing 787-9 aircraft.

Kelowna is a city in the south of Canada’s British Columbia province. It’s in the Okanagan Valley, on the eastern shore of Okanagan Lake, surrounded by provincial parks, pine forest, vineyards, orchards and mountains. Its downtown area incorporates waterfront City Park and a lakeside cultural district. More than 20 local vineyards offer wine tours and tastings.
