The land of fire and ice awaits. 

The WestJet Group on Wednesday (May 15) marked the takeoff of its new flight between Calgary and Reykjavik (Keflavik).

The service – which PAX first reported on last October – links WestJet’s global hub in Calgary to Iceland, bolstering the airline's efforts to enhance YYC Calgary International Airport's connectivity.

"Iceland offers one of the most geologically diverse and breathtaking landscapes in the world and we are thrilled to provide convenient direct access to Reykjavik as we continue to expand our European network," said Angela Avery, WestJet Group’s executive vice-president, chief people, corporate and sustainability officer. "As the only airline providing direct connectivity between Calgary and Iceland, WestJet continues to build its presence as Canada's leisure champion, providing our guests with unprecedented and affordable access to fulfill their travel aspirations year-round."
