WestJet on August 20 reinstated its position as the only airline to operate a nonstop route between Calgary and Paris with the departure of flight 10 from Calgary International Airport on the airline’s Boeing 787 Dreamliner.
With the restart of service to Paris, WestJet becomes the airline serving the most European destinations, direct from its global hub in Calgary. WestJet introduced twice-weekly, nonstop, service between Calgary and Amsterdam (top, and below) on August 5 and is currently serving London (Gatwick) two times weekly, with both markets increasing to three-times weekly in September.

WestJet guests connecting through Air France are eligible to continue earning WestJet Dollars throughout their entire journey as they travel to their preferred European destinations.
