CALGARY –


WestJet plans to offer flights to Japan starting this spring, marking the airline’s first non-stop flights to Asia from Calgary. 


The Calgary-based airline said Monday that it will fly to Tokyo’s Narita International Airport from Calgary this spring. 


The non-stop flights will operate three times weekly beginning April 30. 


The airline also announced new routes from Calgary to Barcelona and Edinburgh and increased frequency to Dublin, London, Paris and Rome, also starting in the spring. 


WestJet chief executive Alexis von Hoensbroech says the new flights are part of the airline’s plan to expand capacity from Calgary by more than 25 per cent by next year, beginning with intercontinental routes.
