Here at Pure Vacations, we are pleased to announce that Virgin Atlantic will codeshare with West Jet and this will allow it to sell the Canadian airlines flights.
West Jet flies all year from London Gatwick to Calgary and Toronto and from London Gatwick to Halifax and Vancouver in the summer season. West Jet offers a large domestic and regional connection network meaning that Canada is opened up once arriving in Canada.
West Jet rebranded as a full-service multi-category airline several years backs and is now seeing the benefits. In 2019 it received four Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner’s featuring business and premium economy cabins and it will open a flagship lounge in Calgary in 2020.
West Jet already has a joint venture partnership with Delta, which owns 49 per cent of Virgin Atlantic so this deal was always on the cards.
