Live seatback television, inflight movies and shows
WestJet is pleased to offer live satellite seatback television provided by Bell TV on most Boeing 737 flights within Canada. You'll get to choose from our channel line-up of the best in sports, news, lifestyle and more. On domestic flights of 2.5 hours or longer you can also watch one of the latest pay-per-view Hollywood blockbusters.
Flights serving great WestJet destinations in the US, Caribbean, and Mexico will offer complimentary stored programming or a limited number of tablet rentals in place of live satellite seatback television. We also recommend bringing books, magazines, tablets, portable DVD players or toys for your little WestJetters. For a description of our tablet rental program please see below.
Earbuds are available for purchase on all flights that offer inflight entertainment options. They're yours to keep, so you can use them on all your WestJet flights (they're also compatible with all your other gadgets). If you have your own earbuds, bring them along. All 3.5 mm (approximately 1/8 in) stereo headphone connections (with one prong) will work with our systems. For a description of the earbuds available for purchase, please visit the WestJet buy-on-board page.
Tablet rental program
WestJet has introduced tablet rentals as we transition to our new inflight entertainment system in 2013. A limited number of tablets will be available on seven of our newest aircraft instead of live seatback television for flights over three hours and 20 minutes, not including our red-eye flights. Guests will be able to rent a tablet preloaded with early-release movies and television shows. The rental price is $10-11.50 with our basic earbuds, $17-19.55 when paired with our premium earbuds, or save 50 per cent off the tablet rental price when you pair it with our active noise cancelling earbuds for $35-40.25.± For a description of the earbuds available for purchase, please visit the WestJet buy-on-board page.
Travelling with WestJet Encore
As our WestJet Encore turboprop aircraft are not equipped with an inflight entertainment system, we recommend bringing books, magazines, portable DVD players/tablets for yourself and some toys for your little WestJetters. Just remember your carry-on allowance is limited. You can also enjoy up! – our inflight magazine – available in the seatback pockets.
