The travel world is encouraged to see overseas connections restored between St. John’s and Europe, but one travel agent has some advice.
WestJet is going to fly between YYT and Gatwick, London three times a week from May to October. a move welcomed by the Canadian Automobile Association (CAA).
Julia Kent, Director, Social Responsibility and Advocacy with CAA Atlantic, says one of the most important things you can do is to purchase travel insurance. It doesn’t cost much and it can save a flyer a lot of money.
Kent also says to keep in mind that the flight happens only three days a week so a cancellation could mean a significant change in plans.
They’re optimistic about the outbound service and they’re seeing more sun destinations, primarily out of Nova Scotia and New Brunswick. Kent notes that a cancellation could mean a delay of one or two days—maybe even more.
