Helping guests get travel ready

By WestJet | | 2 min read

Today, WestJet launched its Travel Ready Series aimed to welcome guests back to travel. Travel Ready was created to ensure guests are equipped and prepared with the information they need to enjoy a smooth and safe return to the skies. 

With an accelerated and highly successful vaccination rollout underway across Canada many Canadians are beginning to book their first flights, while some may have some questions they need answers to, before considering their return to travel. WestJet’s seven-part Travel Ready Series walks guests through what they can expect throughout their entire journey, covering everything from booking, preparing before their flight, to the airport and inflight experience, through to landing in their preferred destination. 

“Some guests will be ready and waiting to get on a flight, yet we understand that others may still be hesitant and haven’t been on an airplane in more than 16 months,” said, Dr. Tammy McKnight, WestJet Chief Medical Officer.

“Since the onset of the pandemic, WestJet has been implementing science-based safety measures to ensure the safety of both our guests and our WestJetters and this effort will not waiver as Canadians make their way back to travel. Who better to demonstrate this commitment than the WestJetters who have been living these safety measures day in and day out for more than a year?” 

WestJet Travel Ready: Welcome back

“We are ready to safely welcome back our guests and are greatly looking forward to once again connecting them to their family, friends and favourite destinations.” said, Billy Nolen, WestJet Vice-President Safety, Security and Quality,. “The care WestJetters show our guests each day plays a large role in making them feel comfortable and safe. That is why it was so important for us to have WestJetters share our safety message, particularly since they have been diligently working to keep our operation safe throughout the pandemic.”
