WestJet is committed to facilitating and improving the accessibility and usability of its website. WestJet strives to ensure that its website services, applications, and content are accessible to persons with disabilities including users of screen reader technology.
To accomplish this, WestJet has engaged UsableNet Inc, a leading web accessibility consultant to help test, remediate, and maintain our website in-line with the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG).2.0 AA conformance. This commitment to accessibility ensures we meet the Canadian Transportation Agency’s Accessible Transportation for Persons with Disabilities Regulations, and the U.S. Department of Transportation Ruling under 14 CFR Part 382, Non-discrimination on the Basis of Disability in Air Travel. Further, we are working towards WCAG 2.1 AA conformance which will exceed the Canadian and U.S requirements and will meet the requirements under the European Union Web Accessibility Directive.
