WestJet To Start Flying From Heathrow?
WestJet airlines of Canada, has possibly gotten slots to fly out of London Heathrow. Previously, they have flown from London Gatwick to Vancouver, Calgary, and Toronto. They formerly operated that with old 767s, but with the arrival of their new 787, they use that now. Sources say that they have gotten slots for two departure times. This isn’t 100% guaranteed, but reliable aviation sources on Twitter say so. These flights would theoretically start on October 25 if this did happen, but again, we have no guarantee from WestJet. WestJet did reply to this tweet saying this:
This would be a major transition for the airline, as Gatwick is more for low-cost health, moving into Heathrow means that they’re really starting to become a real full service carrier, and they’re looking to provide the best service to their passengers. What makes this theory more possible, is because of their partnership with Delta, who may have helped in someway to help them get the slots. Again, this is speculation, and we have no confirmation from WestJet that these flights will be happening, but is exciting to see what will happen!
