Flights from WestJet
When you're on the lookout for flights, what matters the most to you? Is it the range of destinations available from your nearest airport, or the frequency of flights on your preferred route? Perhaps you'll base your decision on price alone — or perhaps you'll prioritize a travel experience that promises to be comfortable from beginning to end. When you fly with WestJet, you don't have to choose just one of the above: you can expect to enjoy convenient, friendly, competitively-priced air travel to some of the world’s most desirable destinations.
The many advantages of flying with WestJet
Here at WestJet, we appreciate that flights are not just about where you go; they're also about how you get there. After all, we believe the journey is as important as the destination, so it's reassuring to know that all of our friendly WestJetters share a common goal: to deliver great guest experiences each and every time. That means you can look forward to courteous, award-winning guest service whether you're jetting off for a tropical vacation or flying cross-country on business. Furthermore, our long-term dedication to excellence isn't limited to the journey itself: our new fare options, for example, were developed in response to feedback from guests just like you, giving you the flexibility to personalize your travel experience with the features you value most — more freedom and less hassle. One such feature is the WestJet ID, which allows you enjoy a number of convenient extras, including managing online bookings for flights and vacations, accessing Travel Bank credits and being the first to know about seat sales. Perhaps best of all is the fact that you'll earn great rewards in the form of WestJet dollars, which have no blackouts!
An inflight experience to remember
Once you book flights with WestJet, you can start looking forward to exemplary air travel — and we're always happy to go the extra mile to make your experience completely comfortable. That includes the ability to select and reserve your favourite seat, so you can choose to sit by a window to enjoy spectacular scenery or take advantage of a little extra leg room by choosing an aisle seat. In your seatback pocket is where you’ll find our delicious buy-on-board menu and a copy of the latest issue of WestJet Magazine, which features hot spots, little-known gems and vital travel information.
Tips for a hassle-free flight
- Check in ahead of time: Our web check-in allows you to check in up to 24 hours before your scheduled departure, so you can bypass the lineups at the airport’s self-serve check-in kiosks.
- Weigh your luggage: If you’re concerned that your luggage will go over the 50-pound per bag limit, be sure to weigh it ahead of time to avoid having to repack your bags at the airport or paying an overweight baggage fee.
- Organize your carry-on: To help ensure a swift security screening, place your 100 ml-or-smaller liquids, gels and aerosols in one clear, closed and resealable plastic bag no larger than one litre before you go. This saves you the hassle of having to rummage through your carry-on at airport security.
Taking you there with care
WestJet was founded in 1996 with one core principle: just because you pay less shouldn't mean you get less. It's a belief that's informed our activities ever since, and we continue to provide our guests with the great value flight and vacation deals they deserve. Yet you can count on us to offer far more than affordable fares alone. Our fleet, for example, is among the youngest in North America, which means you can expect quiet, comfortable, fuel-efficient flights that minimize the impact on the environment. We also run a number of charitable initiatives — including the Airport Giving program, which supports children's hospitals and pediatric wards across Canada – so you can rest assured that choosing WestJet means choosing an airline that truly invests in the communities it serves.
