In another statement published on Dublin Airport's website, Dublin Airport managing director Vincent Harrison said, "We are delighted to see WestJet's route network at Dublin Airport expand further with the addition of Toronto - Dublin to complement the existing Halifax and Calgary services. This news is exciting for business and tourism at both ends of the route as it connects Toronto, as the capital of the province of Ontario, with Ireland's capital city, Dublin. It's a welcome boost to transatlantic connectivity and great to see another Canadian destination added to our growing Dublin Airport network and to witness the further expansion of WestJet’s operation here in Ireland. We have been working closely with WestJet since 2014 to grow its business and build a substantial base here in Dublin. This new service between Toronto and Dublin further cements the strong and enduring cultural and business ties between our two great countries."
