WestJet is bringing back direct flights to Europe this summer.

The airline says they will fly between Halifax and Dublin, Edinburgh and London (Gatwick) between 3 and 4 times a week.

“WestJet has connected Halifax Stanfield and key European destinations for several years, and we’re thrilled they plan to offer three non-stop transatlantic routes again next summer,” said Joyce Carter, President & CEO, Halifax International Airport Authority. “Dublin and London Gatwick were popular routes in the past, both for Atlantic Canadians and Europeans, and we’re delighted to add Edinburgh to our route map in 2024.”

Flights start April 28 to London (Gatwick), then to Edinburgh and Dublin, June 20.
