WestJet has taken delivery the first of 10 Boeing 787-9s it has on order.
Configured with 320 seats in a three-class configuration, the Canadian carrier is set to deploy the aircraft on new international services, including flights from Calgary to European cities such as Dublin, London and Paris.
In addition to the new 787-9, Flight Fleets Analyzer shows that WestJet operates four 767-300ERs, 11 737 Max 8s, and 109 737 NGs.
WestJet also added the Boeing AnalytX digital solutions product, which will aid in the optimisation of its operations.
"Today's delivery marks a new chapter for WestJet," says the airline's president and chief executive Ed Sims. "Boeing's 787 Dreamliner is one of the most technologically advanced aircraft ever flown and is the perfect platform for our transition to a global network carrier. We look forward to bringing Canadians to the world and the world to Canada in comfort and style."
