Unaccompanied minor request

We love welcoming little WestJetters on board, and we want to ensure that they have a great experience with us.

Qualifying program information

The flight must be:

  • between two Canadian cities
  • a direct flight only, or flights with a touchdown where guests are not required to disembark or change aircraft
  • a WestJet flight; cannot be used on flights operated by our airline partners
  • one that does not depart or arrive before 5:30 a.m. and not depart or arrive after 10:00 p.m. (where we have more than one flight per day to the destination).

We are unable to offer this program for children who:

  • are blind or deaf
  • have an allergy that requires them to travel with an epinephrine auto-injector (for example an Epi-pen®)
  • require assistance to take essential medication;
  • have a disability which requires them to travel with a familiar guardian (these children may qualify to travel using our guardian fare program);
  • are not able to communicate (verbally or in writing) in English or French.

Reservation request:

  • You will need to call WestJet to confirm the booking details, and pay for the flight and applicable fee(s) after you have received notification that the flight has been reserved.
  • Pricing and availability is not confirmed until payment is processed.
