Elevation Lounge

Lounge service update

The Elevation Lounge continues to be open for your enjoyment and your safety is our top priority.  

In adherence with Transport Canada’s requirement, masks are still mandatory while travelling through the Calgary International Airport and must be worn at all times while inside the lounge, except while actively eating and drinking.

As of September 20, 2021, the WestJet Elevation Lounge will be implementing the Restriction Exemption Program to align with the Government of Alberta’s recent guidance. With this, our guests 12 and over will be required to provide one of the following to a WestJet Agent at the lounge entrance:

  • Valid paper or digital vaccine record that shows name, vaccine type and date of administration.    
  • From September 20 to October 24, 2021, proof of partial vaccination (one dose) is considered acceptable as long as the dose was given more than 2 weeks prior to visiting.
  • As of October 25, 2021, proof of full vaccination (two doses) is required.
  • Valid photo identification that matches the vaccine record is required for adults 18 and over.
  • Tests must be privately paid, Health Canada approved rapid antigen, rapid PCR or lab-based PCR test completed within 72 hours prior.
  • Valid test results need to be a written or printed copy that clearly outlines the type of test, time of sample collection, clear indication of a negative result, and the laboratory that completed the test, if applicable.
  • Photos of a rapid test result taken offsite will not be accepted.
  • Do not bring completed self-tests or rapid tests due to communicable disease risk.
  • Tests must not be from Alberta Health Services or Alberta Precision Laboratories.
  • The original signed letter from a physician or nurse practitioner that includes:
  • Person's name that matches their identification.
  • Physician’s or nurse practitioner’s complete information, including:
  • name, phone number, contact information, professional registration number and signature
  • statement that there is a medical reason for not being fully vaccinated against COVID-19
  • duration that the exemption is valid

These requirements will be in place until further notice. We appreciate your understanding as we continue to work together to ensure the safety of all our guests.
