From March 2016, WestJet will begin utilising WestJet Encore’s fleet of Bombardier Q400 NextGen aircraft to operate a new, twice-daily service between Toronto Pearson International Airport and London, Ontario.
Flights will take off from Toronto at 13:45, landing in London at 14:31. The return service will depart London at 15:05 and arrive back in Toronto for 15:48. The second service will leave Toronto at 22:05, reaching London at 22:51. All of these services will start on 15 March 2016, but the final return leg from London to Toronto will start on 16 March 2016, as it departs at 06:30, landing at 07:13.
“London has been an important part of WestJet's network for more than a decade, but before today's announcement, we could only offer Londoners service to and from the west as well as a few sun destinations,” explained Chris Avery, WestJet’s vice-president of network planning, alliances and corporate development. “Now, the rest of WestJet's ever-expanding network is available for London travellers – all with a simple and convenient connection in Toronto.”
The London–Toronto service opens up 52 new WestJet destinations and 47 new codeshare destinations via Toronto Pearson to Eastern Canada, the United States, Caribbean, Mexico and Europe.
