Waited a while for luggage at the airport but flight was great
Slight delay but ok otherwise
Staff were fab. Service felt personal.
Everything went perfectly!
Najila from Portobello Road who helped me with my check in at Gatwick was amazing!!
Generous carry on baggage allowance - no exact weight limits, unlike some competitors.
Couldve handed us complimentary headphones before take off rather than to pester for them
The plane was really nice, but didn’t get any earphones for the tv, so had 9hr flight with out sound, other air lines supply them.
Food could be better considering the cost of flight. No free bagage was offered. Expect hold baggage to be opened.
Expect your hold baggage to be opened up. Some food is appalling on flight.
Located on the border of the Canadian prairies and foothills, Calgary is an entry point for the Rocky Mountains and the ski resorts of Banff and Jasper but still a charming destination in its own right.
As the gateway to the ski resorts of the Rockies, winter is usually high season for travel to Calgary. But you shouldn’t overlook the city itself. The largest city in Alberta, this cowboy town is also a great summer destination, with rodeos and Western culture pervading in the summer months.
If you’re travelling during the ski season, it pays to try and book early as it can get busy. But, even during the winter months, you can find cheap flights to Calgary using Expedia.

Downtown Calgary is quite compact and easily explored on foot. If you’re exploring a little further afield, there are good bus and rail options in and around the city. The C-Train runs frequently around the city and you can ride up to 14 blocks for free. Buses are less frequent and mostly used for commuting but can still be useful for tourists.
Canada’s third largest Chinatown is in the city and a great place to go and eat. You can spend hours exploring the peaceful Prince’s Island Park, home to two of the largest annual festivals in the city, the Folk Music Festival and Carifest. For the best views in the city, head to the top of the Calgary Tower.
British citizens don’t need a visa for short stays but will need an Electronic Travel Authorisation before departing or you will not be allowed to board your flight. You can apply online for these from the Canadian government’s website.
