The Nashville International Airport has added another destination for locals to enjoy. WestJet, which offers direct flights to Toronto, has added a twice-weekly nonstop service to Calgary, Alberta, Canada.
“Today’s announcement marks BNA’s first nonstop flight to Calgary and our second nonstop Canadian destination,” said Rob Wigington, President, and CEO of the Metropolitan Nashville Airport Authority. “WestJet started BNA–Toronto service less than a year ago, and we’re excited they’ve decided to bring even more international service to Nashville.”
Calgary is the largest city in the western Canadian province of Alberta, and the fifth largest city in Canada. It is home to the world-famous Calgary Stampede, a celebration of Canada’s own Wild West and cattle ranching industry. Calgary is also the entrance to the Canadian Rockies, including well-known tourist destinations Banff National Park and Jasper National Park.
Flights from Calgary will depart on Thursday and Sunday at 10 am with an arrival time in Nashville on both days at 2:45 pm. From Nashville, flights will depart at 3:40 pm with an arrival time of 6:50 pm in Calgary. Tickets are currently on sale now, and service begins May 4, 2017.
