On Saturday (March 2, 2024), WestJet announced the restart of service between Toronto Pearson International Airport (YYZ) and Dublin International Airport (DUB).  As flight WS34 touched down in Dublin, WestJet marks a decade of service to Europe, with the first flight between St. Johns and Dublin taking to the skies in 2014. For Summer 2024, WestJet will connect three major Eastern Canadian cities with key destinations across Europe.   

In Saturday’s announcement, WestJet Group’s EVP and Chief Commercial Officer, John Weatherill, said,

“Service between Toronto and Dublin continues be an important part of WestJet's story, and we celebrate a decade of service that has strengthened ties between our two countries.  The return of daily seasonal service between Toronto and Dublin gives Canadians the opportunity to immerse themselves in the diverse landscapes, rich culture and warm hospitality of Ireland with the convenience and affordability WestJet is known for.”
