Get your fascinators ready! WestJet representatives were at Toronto’s sophisticated Fairmont Royal York Hotel this week to officially announce the carrier’s new low-cost Gatwick services.

Candice Li, chief financial officer at WestJet, announced that the flights are starting at just $249 one-way and will depart from Vancouver, Edmonton, Calgary, Winnipeg and St John’s.

The flight season will start on May 6 2016 and run until the end of October.

Your clients will be saving more than a pretty penny with this deal, and with multiple flights available every day, it should be easy to find some good flight times.

Gatwick is only 47.5 miles from central London, a city rich in history and amazing architecture. Your clients will not be hard-pressed to enjoy themselves touring London’s famous landmarks like Big Ben, the Palace of Westminster, Tower Bridge and Buckingham Palace.

Gatwick is WestJet’s third transatlantic destination and second United Kingdom destination.
