WestJet is proud of a year of records. A record number of guests enjoyed WestJet’s remarkable experience, our aircraft were fuller than ever before and we saw net earnings of $242 million – thanks to the commitment of more than 9,000 WestJetters.
Over 85 per cent of WestJetters participate in our employee share purchase plan, making them owners as well and aligned with the continued success of the airline. We are enthusiastic about our new initiatives in 2013 – including the launch of WestJet Encore – and know that success will continue to come from our culture of caring for our guests and maintaining our low-cost roots.
