Holiday Heroes

Over the holidays, WestJetters work hard to connect you with your loved ones. And so do thousands of others who dedicate their holiday time to get you where you need to go. So, this year, we want to celebrate these holiday heroes by reconnecting them with their families. Do you know a holiday hero working away from their loved ones this season? Please tell us below.

    Meet our holiday heroes:

    Ashley Springer

    Bus Operator Coast Mountain Bus Company - TransLink

    Meet Ashley, a bus driver with a heart of gold. One of the most rewarding aspects of his job is uniting travellers with their loved ones, a task he undertakes with unwavering enthusiasm. Despite often working during the holidays, Ashley prioritizes the value of family. Which made reconnecting him with his sister Nikki and nephew Elijah from New York even more meaningful. 

    Killian Kampes

    Valet Attendant, Fairmont Hotel Vancouver

    Killian is a warm-hearted valet from Dundalk, a town nestled between Dublin and Belfast. He finds joy in being one of the first faces that greet travellers when they’re staying in a new city. His genuine enthusiasm is felt in every interaction. For his Christmas Miracle, we reunited him with his mom and dad, who made the long journey from Ireland. The result was a touching reunion for a family that clearly love each other's company.

    Husan Gill

    Ramp Agent, AGI - Vancouver International Airport

    Husan is a dedicated member of the AGI family who manages the delicate dance of getting luggage from planes to terminals. We were thrilled to connect Husan with her dear friend, Aman. Their bond goes beyond the ordinary as they've been inseparable since growing up in the same village and riding the bus to school together as children. The result? A reunion charged with emotion and the joy of seeing a cherished friend again.
