WestJet Cargo has launched Bike’Air which offers transportation of motorbikes to cater for motorcycle tourism demand.

The service runs from April to October and is available both on domestic and international flights connecting Canada to the US and Europe.

Destinations include Miami, Los Angeles, Barcelona, Dublin, Edinburgh, Paris, Rome London Gatwick and Heathrow. They can be reached from four stations in Canada – Calgary, Halifax, Toronto and Vancouver.

Owners drop off their bike at one of the stations, pick it up at destination, start riding and then return it to any city that is part of the Bike’Air programme.

To help promote the service, the Canadian airline teamed up with Canadian photographer David Goldman who photographs individuals connected to motorcycles. He has been appointed as a WestJet ambassador for the service.

His 2019 KTM 790 Adventure motorbike was flown by WestJet from Halifax to Dublin on June 2.

Kirsten de Bruijn, WestJet Cargo’s executive vice president, said: “WestJet Cargo recognises the potential of motorcycle tourism and is determined to support its growth and culture, by making it even more accessible and appealing to riders.”
