A brand new service between Dublin Airport and Toronto will launch next year.

The WestJet route will operate four-times weekly, beginning on May 15, 2022 and will increase to daily by June 2, 2022.

The airline first launched back in 1996. They will be operating the new Dublin route on their Boeing 737 MAX aircraft.

There was more good Dublin Airport news last week, when it was announced that a number of Aer Lingus flights to popular North American destinations are restarting next month.

Flights to Newark resume on November 14, while Orlando will welcome frights from Dublin starting on November 27.

There will be four flights per week to Newark, increasing to one per day on December 1, with fares starting at €149.

Dublin to Orlando will operate three times a week costing €169 each way.

Commenting on the new Toronto flights, Vincent Harrison, Dublin Airport Managing Director said: "We are delighted to see WestJet’s route network at Dublin Airport expand further with the addition of Toronto – Dublin to complement the existing Halifax and Calgary services.

"This news is exciting for business and tourism at both ends of the route as it connects Toronto, as the capital of the province of Ontario, with Ireland’s capital city, Dublin.

"It’s a welcome boost to transatlantic connectivity and great to see another Canadian destination added to our growing Dublin Airport network and to witness the further expansion of WestJet’s operation here in Ireland."
