Budget flights to Canada launched

WestJet has launched new budget flights between London's Gatwick Airport and five Canadian cities. The airline is operating a total of 28 non stop round trips services to Vancouver, Edmonton, Calgary, Winnipeg, Toronto and St.John's (Newfoundland). Calgary and Toronto flights will operate all year, respectively five time a week and daily. Flights to Calgary will represent a cost saving option for skiers heading to Rocky Mountain resorts such as Banff and Lake Louise. Services to the other destinations will run until various dates in October. Most of the flights are on the airline's Boeing 767-300 jets, which are equipped with wi fi technology. Access costs between about £2.70 for 30 minutes and £8.50 for the whole journey. Passengers may also pay extra for premium seats. Sample fares at the time of writing: a return trip to Toronto in economy, departing on Saturday May 28 and returning one week later was showing at a touch under £469. A return ticket to Vancouver was approximately £535.
