By WestJet | | 1 min read

The WestJet Group and the Government of Canada have had constructive discussions over the last several months. Given encouraging vaccination rates across the country, both parties have mutually agreed to shift focus from these negotiations, and away from taxpayer-funded support, to leading the safe restart of the travel and tourism sector.

The WestJet Group confirms it is not actively pursuing financial support from the federal government. WestJet and the Government of Canada remain open to resuming financial support discussions in the future.
