This daily Dreamliner service, starting October 23, 2019, upgrades WestJet’s existing Toronto-London service operated on the 767.

“Flying on the WestJet Dreamliner is a game changer in travel; guest feedback on the experience has been phenomenal,” said Brian Znotins, WestJet Vice-President Network Planning and Alliances. “The Dreamliner was built for transoceanic routes with technology that reduces jetlag and leaves travellers feeling more refreshed upon arrival. With our custom cabins and award-winning service, guests are going to love the journey as much as the destination.”

“We congratulate Westjet on the expansion of their Dreamliner service from Toronto Pearson to London Gatwick, starting later this year,” said Scott Collier, Vice-President Customer and Terminal Services, Greater Toronto Airports Authority (GTAA) “Toronto Pearson is proud to be part of WestJet’s continued growth and is glad to see this enhanced experience offered to passengers making business or leisure trips between Toronto and the UK.”
