WestJet (Calgary) tonight (June 15) will mark a key milestone in its 18-year history with the launch of its first scheduled trans-Atlantic service between Toronto and Dublin, Ireland, with a brief stop in St. John’s, Newfoundland. The flight will arrive in Dublin tomorrow (June 16) at 7 a.m. (0700) local time.
Announced in November 2013, WestJet offered introductory fares between Toronto and Dublin starting from $199 including taxes, fees and surcharges on all flights in both directions from June 15 to October 5, 2014 – fares which sold out within the first 24 hours. Today, the service is heavily booked and well ahead of projections, recently prompting a three-week extension to October 25, 2014.
