About us

Our Airline

WestJet was founded in 1996 by Clive Beddoe and a team of like-minded partners, who believed that just because you pay less for your flight, doesn't mean you should get less.

Armed with that philosophy, three aircraft, five destinations and 220 friendly WestJetters, we began our journey — a journey that would help us become a company of more than 9,700 passionate WestJetters flying one of the youngest fleets of Boeing 737 Next-Generation aircraft to more than 88 destinations across our network. Our continued efforts toward responsible growth consider our impact to the environment, to the communities where we fly and to and the people we reach on a daily basis.

Our culture

Sure, it's our aircraft that fly you places, but it's really our people who get you there. In fact, our entire corporate culture has been built around caring for our people, who in turn, take great care of our guests. Our culture has won us numerous awards over our 20-year history. After claiming top spot in Waterstone's study of Canada's 10 Most Admired Corporate Cultures for four years in a row, WestJet was inducted into its Hall of Fame in 2010. In 2015, Waterstone again named us Canada's Most Admired Corporate Culture. From 2012 through 2015, WestJet was also named Canada's Most Attractive Employer by Randstad. In addition, Aon Hewitt named WestJet as one of the Best Employers in Canada in 2015. No matter how far our network reaches, at our core we are still driven by our key differentiator, our people, and the fact that they continue to provide a remarkable guest experience.
