Fun Facts about our Non-stops

Amsterdam is serviced by KLM airline and flies non-stop between Edmonton and Amsterdam four times a week during peak season. 

Reykjavik, Iceland is a great destination to fly to non-stop to experience Iceland. This route is also perfect for travellers connecting to other European destinations, and it takes a little over six hours to make the trip.

The island of Maui has a population of less than 150,000, yet there are three airports on the island! I suppose living on an island would mean a lot more trips by air. This route recently received an upgauge from WestJet, now being served on a Boeing 767 aircraft.

WestJet began flying between Edmonton and London Gatwick in May, 2016. In 2015, Gatwick Airport became the first single runway airport to handle more than 40 million passengers annually.

EIA has two airlines that offer service to Seattle: Delta Air Lines and Alaska Airlines. Many travellers from both ends of this route travel to watch their favourite sports teams in action. Unfortunately, you'd never be able to watch your hometown football team playing an away game, since the CFL and NFL don't mix. 

Visitors to Yellowknife, NWT can have two very different experiences depending on the time of year. Summers in Yellowknife are beautiful, and there are countless opportunities for fishing and other outdoor activities. The winter days are long and cold, but taking in the natural beauty of the region on a dogsled more than makes up for it. If you're out on Great Slave Lake in the summer (specifically Yellowknife Bay), chances are you'll float past a house boat; many people live right on the lake. What happens during the winter? Well, the house boats stay frozen in place, eagerly awaiting the summer thaw. 

Denver International Airport is the largest airport in the United States in terms of land area. (Sound familiar?) It’s so huge that the four busiest airports in the US (Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport, O’Hare International Airport, Los Angeles International Airport and Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport) could fit into Denver Airport’s 53-square miles of land.

You can fly to Barcelona by connecting through our KLM Amsterdam flight. Antoni Gaudi is considered one of the great architects who vastly influenced buildings in the city. His La Sagrada Familia, a Roman Catholic Church began in 1882, is still under construction today - many years after his death.
