The WestJet Group announced significant enhancements to its transoceanic and leisure travel offering with its winter 787 schedule.

The airline will offer year-round service between Calgary International Airport and Tokyo Narita International Airport, and an increase in daily connectivity between Calgary and Paris Charles-de-Gaulle International and London Heathrow International airports.

The WestJet Group also said it will enhance its 787 presence on popular leisure routes with service between Canada, Mexico and Hawaii.

“Our 787 winter schedule reflects the growing demand for year-round international options for business and leisure travellers from our global hub in Calgary to Asia, Europe and North America,” said John Weatherill, WestJet Group executive vice-president and chief commercial officer. "We will continue to strategically position our Dreamliners to provide the best global access between Western Canada and the world."

Building on the existing summer seasonal service, WestJet is investing in year-round service between Calgary and Tokyo.

The service enhancement is a strategic milestone for the airline, bringing more visitors to Alberta and strengthening global tourism opportunities, while preserving Calgary’s position as the most connected mid-sized city in North America.

Through WestJet’s longstanding codeshare agreement with Japan Airlines guests will also have access to seven destinations beyond Tokyo.

“This winter, WestJet will fly more than 60,000 seats between Asia and Alberta, creating a catalyst for year-round collaboration between our two unique economies and tourism hubs,” continued Weatherill. “This route has proven to be an exceptional conduit for transpacific leisure and business travellers connecting to Calgary and Alberta.”

WestJet will also bolster its European winter service offering with daily connectivity to both London and Paris from the airline's global hub in Calgary.

While these routes were previously served throughout the winter, frequency to Paris has been increased to daily to match London and to meet the unprecedented demand for business and leisure travel between Western Canada and Europe.

Guests will also benefit from WestJet’s codeshare agreement with Air France, which unlocks 53 additional European destinations beyond Paris.
