WestJet made this announcement:

With the departure of flight WS6 late on June 1, WestJet becomes the only airline operating a nonstop route between Calgary and Dublin. The airline’s newest route provides historic access between Western Canada and Ireland and is the last of three Boeing 787 Dreamliner inaugurals that are central to WestJet’s global strategy and focus on Calgary as its initial Dreamliner hub.

WestJet’s newest Dreamliner route adds to its existing 787-9 flights between Calgary, Paris and London (Gatwick), supporting tourism and trade between Europe and Canada. In addition, WestJet’s Calgary-Dublin service complements its existing seasonal Halifax-Dublin route. WestJet has been operating flights to Dublin from Eastern Canada since 2014.

Flights between Calgary and Dublin are operated by the airline’s fleet of 320-seat, Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner aircraft featuring WestJet’s business, premium and economy cabins.

By June 2019, WestJet will offer flights to 67 nonstop destinations with an average of 975 flights per week from Calgary. More Calgarians choose WestJet for their air travel than any other airline.
