Environmentally sustainable

Delivering approximately 13 per cent more fuel efficiency than the Boeing 737 Next-Generation aircraft, the efficiencies built into the 737-8 MAX aircraft help us pursue our environmental stewardship objectives, minimizing fuel and operating costs, reducing emissions and maximizing efficiency through added guest capacity, enabling WestJet to carry more guests with less aircraft per route.

Spacious seating and interior storage

The Boeing 737-8 MAX is built to maximize efficiency with more overhead bin space, making it easier for guests to comfortably store carry-on luggage. The Boeing Sky Interior is designed to create a more spacious and comfortable feel with flowing curves and full-length sculpted walls.

Quieter engine

The Boeing 737-8 MAX is uniquely configured to optimize guest comfort, with quiet engine technology used to reduce engine noise by up to 40 per cent as compared to the Boeing Next-Generation 737.

Strategic player

A key pillar of the WestJet Group’s strategy is leveraging the Boeing 737 MAX aircraft as a driver of growth. WestJet’s fleet includes a total of 32 Boeing 737 MAX aircraft, with another 62 on order. With a focus on domestic, transborder and sun-flying capacity, the Boeing 737 MAX aircraft are an integral part of WestJet’s future.
