WestJet Christmas Miracle : 12 Flights of Christmas

For 12 days, we surprised thousands of guests across our network to spread a little WestJet Christmas cheer. Our WestJetters and special guests brought them to life, but the vision came straight from the minds of those who know the magic of Christmas best – children.

Flight 1

Experiences or Stuff

You voted for Experiences. Watch how Mrs. Claus and Genie Bouchard surprise our guests in Montreal with memorable experiences.

Flight 2

Bells or Bows

You voted for Bows. Here’s how Santa Claus and Jillian Harris integrated bows into a memorable Christmas experience for our guests in Calgary.

Flight 3

Home or Away

You voted for Home. See how Aaron Sanchez brings the feeling of Christmas home with a snow globe at Toronto Pearson International Airport.

Flight 4

Tickets or Toys

You voted for Tickets. Guests arriving in Winnipeg will not only get a special treat from the Royal Winnipeg Ballet, they’ll also get a surprise ticket with their bags.

Flight 5

Ugly Christmas Sweaters or Festive Attire

You voted for Ugly Christmas Sweaters. Watch to see how we integrate ugly sweaters into our Christmas Miracle experience in Hamilton with Colin Mochrie.

Flight 7

Sweet or Sour

You voted for sweet and we decorated a giant gingerbread gate at Ottawa international Airport with some sweet goodies for all to eat.
