WestJet's New Service Between Toronto and Edinburgh Took Off

On June 03, WestJet celebrated the launch of service to Edinburgh with the departure of WS16 from Toronto Pearson International Airport (YYZ) at 21:21 local time.

With the addition of the airline's latest connection to Europe, WestJet will now fly non-stop to five European destinations from Toronto this summer including Edinburgh, Glasgow, Dublin, London-Gatwick and Barcelona, Spain.

"We are thrilled that Edinburgh is the final European connection to inaugurate from Toronto this summer, rounding out the restoration of our network and strengthening our offerings from Toronto. These cities are some of the world's most vibrant and iconic destinations and we are working diligently as demand for international travel continues to ramp up," said John Weatherill, chief commercial officer, WestJet. "Seamless connectivity between Europe and Canada is critical to the recovery of Canada's travel and tourism industry.  We look forward to welcoming more Canadians and global guests on board this summer as we continue to restore our network to pre-pandemic levels."

WestJet's newest transatlantic flight will operate during peak season, three-times weekly. WestJet currently offers service to two Scottish destinations with service from Toronto to Edinburgh and Glasgow and flights between Halifax and Glasgow.
