The Honourable Omar Alghabra, Minister of Transport
"Alberta's businesses are known for outstanding leadership when it comes to pursuing innovative technologies, and WestJet is no exception. Tapping into the vast potential of Sustainable Aviation Fuel will help decarbonize the transportation sector while cutting emissions, creating clean energy jobs, growing the economy, and creating new opportunities for the aviation industry to thrive. Congratulations to WestJet on this impressive initiative."
Hon. Sonya Savage, Minister of Environment and Protected Areas
“The United States Government proudly celebrates the use of sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) on WestJet’s direct flight between San Francisco and Calgary and supports WestJet’s commitment to sustainability as it aligns with the climate objectives of both the United States and Canada. The United States will continue to support emissions reductions through legislation such as the Inflation Reduction Act, which demonstrates that supportive policy can successfully advance decarbonization.”
