About us

In 1996, Clive Beddoe and a team of like-minded partners started WestJet with three aircraft, five destinations and 220 friendly WestJetters. 22 years later, we have three different aircraft types and fly to more than 100 destinations in North America, Central America, The Caribbean and Europe. Our 13,000+ WestJetters are dedicated to flying more than 22 million guests a year, on over 700 flights per day, with a fleet of over 150 aircraft.

Over the years, our values have remained:

  • Commitment to safety
  • Positive and passionate in everything we do
  • Appreciative of our People and Guests
  • Fun, friendly and caring
  • Align the interests of WestJetters with the interests of the company
  • Honest, open and keep our commitments

Our mission is to enrich the lives of everyone in WestJet's world. We’re proud to have won awards that show us you think we do.

Our business is to ensure you love where you’re going, whether it’s on the trip of a lifetime or your fourth business trip this month.
