WestJet adds eastern Canada route from Gatwick

WestJet is building on an increased presence in Scotland by adding a summer Gatwick service to eastern Canada.

The seasonal route to St. John’s, the capital of Newfoundland and Labrador, will run between May 1 and October 25 next year.

Three flights a week have been scheduled on Sundays, Wednesdays and Fridays.

Flights to the most easterly point of Canada will take less than six hours, with one-way farers starting at £232.

 Tourism body Atlantic Canada said: “Further opening up the province’s accessibility, the new direct flight route will allow UK holidaymakers to discover the area with greater ease and provide a boost to the tourism sector. 

“From the gateway of St John’s, Newfoundland and Labrador, visitors can explore the highlights on an Atlantic Canadian adventure.”
