About WestJet Cargo

Travel info


WestJet has partnered with Montreal-based Exp-air Cargo to offer an air-shipping option for guests sending items that do not meet our typical carry-on and checked baggage restrictions for flights.

Our online cargo booking system allows you to book online, track your shipments remotely and follow progress in real time. WestJet Cargo accounts are setup to expedite the shipping process for guests frequently using our services.

Our cargo network has grown to include much of our Canadian network, with recent expansion including our destinations in the United States, Central America, Ireland and the Caribbean.

Our experienced cargo experts are ready to offer you fast, friendly and reliable service that our guests have come to expect from us. We have several warehouse drop-off locations across Canada.
