WestJet’s newest destination is out of this world.

WestJet today announced a significant expansion to its network, inviting guests to explore a destination like no other — space. With one-way commercial space flights starting at only $500,000 CAD, WestJet continues to make air travel affordable and accessible as it forays into space tourism for the first time.

“26 years ago, our collective goal at WestJet was to provide Canadians with competitive prices and a caring level of service and today that mission remains the same,” said Alexis von Hoensbroech, WestJet, CEO. “Launching WestJet-X is the next logical step for WestJet as we have identified an immediate demand for affordable galactic travel and we are thrilled to be offering our guests with more choice, decreased cost and exceptional service on their journey through the Milky Way.”

With a doctorate in astrophysics, obtained from the Max Plank Institute for Radio Astronomy, WestJet’s CEO brings with him an abundance of experience in the airline industry and the perfect education to lead WestJet’s new intergalactic endeavours.  

To make space travel accessible to a larger audience, WestJet-X is able to cut costs in half by providing guests with one-way tickets, making extended stays on Mars that much more attainable.
