Superior range and capacity

As the largest aircraft in WestJet’s fleet, the Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner can fly intercontinental journeys, carrying up to 320 guests per flight, making it ideal for European, Asian and high-demand routes.

Three-cabin configuration

The Dreamliner is WestJet’s only aircraft configured with three separate cabin types: Business, Premium and Economy. The three-cabin configuration allows WestJet to fulfill the needs of each guest with different levels of service for all types of travelers.

Exceptional entertainment

The Dreamliner features personal touch screen entertainment systems at every seat, where guests can access a variety of movies, music, games and TV shows on demand. Complimentary noise-cancelling headphones are offered for all guests.

Comfort and conveniences

The Dreamliner provides a newer, more comfortable layout, with bespoke seats in all three cabins. More overhead bin space, dimmable windows, adjustable LED lighting and regulated cabin air humidity take guest comfort to the next level.


The Dreamliner is equipped with an engine designed for long-haul flights, with ample range and altitude capacity, making it an ideal option for transcontinental flying. The aircraft’s larger capacity makes it optimal for high-demand sun-flying routes during the winter.

Environmentally conscious

The Dreamliner is built with sustainability in mind, using 25 per cent less fuel per passenger compared to an aircraft of similar size. This allows WestJet to operate more efficiently and offer guests more affordable options by cutting down on overhead costs.
