July 13 Update: WestJet flights to Europe return this August and more hints of the airline retiring their Boeing 767 aircraft

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.
