The airline's newest route provides historic access between Western Canada and Ireland and is the last of three 787 Dreamliner inaugurals that are central to WestJet's global strategy and focus on Calgary as its initial Dreamliner hub.

"With the launch of our third transatlantic Dreamliner flight, WestJet adds to our exceptional growth into and out of Calgary, where we remain the airline with the most destinations and departures," said Arved von zur Muehlen, WestJet chief commercial officer. "With more than 4.5 million Canadians claiming Irish heritage*, we are pleased to be providing Canadians with easy access between Western Canada and Ireland."

A new chapter

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, 787-9 Dreamliner aircraft featuring WestJet's business, premium and economy cabins. The Dreamliner's Business cabin features all-aisle-access, lie-flat seats with on-demand dining and entertainment. The upscale Premium cabin is the ideal combination of comfort, value and guest service including a separate cabin, elevated meal service and signature welcome perks featuring sparkling wine and amenity case. WestJet's improved Economy cabin features on-demand inflight entertainment, blankets and pillows with a select number of extra legroom seats available for purchase.

By June 2019, WestJet will offer flights to 67 non-stop destinations with an average of 975 flights per week from Calgary.
