Canadian airline WestJet has announced it has scrapped some of its flights to Glasgow.
The airline’s transatlantic flights between Halifax and Europe have been temporarily suspended for summer 2023 which includes flights from the Nova Scotian capital to Glasgow.
London Gatwick, Dublin and Paris are also affected by the move.
The announcement on Monday, January 30, came as a result of “capacity constraints impacting the aviation ecosystem,” the carrier said, and due to WestJet’s “strategic decision to suspend transatlantic flying from select Canadian cities.”
John Weatherill, WestJet Group executive vice-president and chief commercial officer, said: “Halifax remains an integral part of our network and we understand this is disappointing news for our guests and the local community.
“As we continue to responsibly balance our schedule alongside operational requirements, capacity constraints and the deployment of our aircraft across Canada, we are making these difficult decisions now to enable us to re-position our investments to best serve the province for years to come.”
