It’s never been easier to explore and do business in CalgaryBoston, and beyond.”


The WestJet flight will leave Logan International Airport at 5 p.m. and arrive in Calgary at 8 p.m. The flight from Calgary will leave at 9:45 a.m. and arrive in Boston at 4:15 p.m.

The Air Canada service begins June 22.
