Due to exceptional demand for its seasonal service to the city of love, WestJet has extended service between Calgary and Paris Charles de Gaulle Airport to now operate year-round. The once seasonal route will continue to fly on WestJet’s 787 Dreamliner up to seven days per week during peak travel periods.
WestJet’s new extended service to Paris joins the airline’s existing year-round service to London from YYC Calgary International Airport and will create even more opportunity for guests across Western Canada to access Europe every month of the year.
“By bolstering our intercontinental network with year-round flights to Paris, we are opening a new world of opportunity to leisure and business travelers destined for Europe,” said Chris Avery, Vice-President, Network Planning, Alliances and Commercial Development, WestJet. “The success of our intercontinental destinations from YYC is only creating new and exciting ways for WestJet to connect Western Canadians with even greater access to Europe all through the convenience of direct travel.”
The addition of year-round service to Paris furthers WestJet’s longstanding codeshare partnership with Air France. With access to connect through Air France to 22 additional European destinations, WestJet guests are eligible to continue earning WestJet Dollars throughout their entire journey as they travel to their preferred European destinations.

This summer, WestJet expanded its transoceanic network to offer service between Calgary and eight destinations.

With even more intercontinental flights from Calgary than ever before, the airline has also started summer service between Calgary and Tokyo, marking the first time WestJet has included Asia in its expanding network.
