 The airline's new route is its first to Spain and gives European business and leisure travellers access to the greater WestJet network through the airline's Toronto hub.

"This flight between Barcelona and Toronto complements our existing Toronto-London (Gatwick) service in providing our guests with another non-stop flight to a popular European tourism and financial centre," said Arved von zur Muehlen, WestJet Chief Commercial Officer. "In addition, Europeans looking to travel to Canada this summer now have even greater access to the greater WestJet network through our Toronto hub. We look forward to welcoming our guests on board today and providing them with a truly caring Canadian experience throughout their journey."

Three times a week

The three-times weekly service is operated on WestJet's Boeing 767 that includes the airline's updated Premium and Economy cabin service. This summer, with the addition of Barcelona, WestJet will operate to five European cities including London, Gatwick, Paris, Dublin and Glasgow.
