WestJet Airlines Ltd. plans to expand its transatlantic flights next year by adding flights from Halifax to Glasgow.
The airline announced the new destination Friday at a ceremony at Robert Stanfield International Airport in Halifax.
The airline said the Halifax-Glasgow service will begin in May and last through October and follows St. John's-Dublin flights that began earlier this year.
WestJet will use Boeing 737 planes for the Halifax-Glasgow flights and not the larger Boeing 767s it has leased. The Boeing 767s will fly to Hawaii during the winter travel season, but WestJet has not announced where they will flying during the summer.
