WestJet has released details of their updated flight
schedule for August which sees the airline return to Europe and
Jamaica. They will continue to fly to 5 U.S. cities, Cancun, Mexico and
increase flights domestically. For Europe WestJet will return to London
(Gatwick) with three flights per week and Paris with two flights per
week as of August 20. (Source WestJet)
There are more hints of WestJet getting set to
retire their four Boeing 767 aircraft. You may recall we mentioned a few
months back how WestJet had donated a 100+ Boeing 767 food carts to
Alberta Health Services without wanting them back so this gave us an
inkling that retirement of the aircraft may been imminent. RoutesOnline reported this weekend that the airline’s route to Barcelona for 2021 has been updated to a Boeing 787 Dreamliner instead of the 767 and they also report that they can’t find the aircraft in WestJet’s schedules as of September 15.
