Checked and excess baggage

From what to pack to how you can pack it, you'll find all you need to know about checked baggage right here. Looking for information on fees? Please see our service fees page.

You will be able to prepay for up to two pieces of checked baggage on WestJet operated flights when you book online or through Manage Trips at any time up to 24 hours before your flight. Checked baggage fees may also be paid when you check-in online or at the airport 24 hours to 60 minutes before you fly.

Guests are encouraged to pre-pay for their first and second bags, as baggage fees will increase by $10 within 24 hours of departure or when checking-in at the airport for travel on or after June 1, 2022. There are no changes to our current baggage fee pricing when selecting pre-pay baggage options at the time of booking or in advance of check-in requirements.
