WestJet to operate the new direct Calgary-Rome Fiumicino route from 7 May 2022  

By Thursday, 31 March 2022 09:44

WestJet is ready to relaunch its summer network, bringing it back to almost pre-pandemic levels. This means a full-scale return to transatlantic routes, and includes the introduction of some new frequencies, including the long-awaited direct Calgary-Rome Fiumicino flights. These were initially planned for May 2020 and then postponed due to the pandemic, but now they will be starting on 7 May, with three weekly frequencies.

Direct access to the Eternal City from Western Canada

"For the first time the people of Western Canada will have direct access to the Eternal City,” said Ed Sims, president and ceo of WestJet, at the announcement of the new service in late October 2019 WestJet’s ongoing strategy of expansion from Calgary reinforces the airline’s commitment to investing in an airport that is increasingly an international hub. “The use of the Dreamliner on the Rome route as well as the ability to operate non-stop also positions us as a preferred choice to travel to the Italian capital."

WestJet will operate 600 daily departures 

During the peak season the Canadian carrier will serve 43 domestic, 23 cross-border, 16 Caribbean and eight transatlantic destinations, restoring 94 percent of its pre-pandemic routes, with more than 600 daily departures across the entire network. WestJet also plans to increase connections between Halifax and Paris, London, Dublin, Glasgow and Edinburgh, while the new daily flights between Toronto and Chicago are scheduled to begin on 19 May, 2022.
