Deaf or partial hearing

We're dedicated to ensuring your WestJet flight is as smooth and enjoyable as possible.


We make every effort to assist guests who are deaf or have partial hearing. We offer TTY phone service 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

TTY: If you have a teletypewriter (TTY), you can contact us with a few simple steps:

  1. Dial 711.
  2. After the operator gives you the go ahead, type in 1-888-937-8538 and then type GA.
  3. The operator will dial the number for you and will let you know as soon as someone answers the call.
  4. You will then proceed to use teletype to communicate with the operator, and the operator will act as a translator to WestJet.
