Guardian fare bookings

Guardian Fare Program

Guests between 2 and 11 years of age must be accompanied by an adult on all WestJet flights. You can add children to bookings made on westjet.com to ensure that your child is seated beside you. Guests 12 years of age or older are able to travel on their own and must be booked as adults, but can be seated beside you by calling us at 1-888-937-8538 to advise us of their age.

The guardian fare allows parents or guardians to escort children on most WestJet flights. With the purchase of a guardian fare, the guardian is eligible for a reduced fare, but is required to return to their departure city within 24 hours.

The scheduled departure time for the return flight of the guardian must be no less than 2 hours after the original flight arrives into the destination.

Guardian fare flight availability and booking options can be determined by calling 1-888-937-8538 between the hours of 7:00 a.m. – 5:30 p.m. MST. Please ask to speak with the Special Care Desk.

The guardian fare is not offered on WestJet's 787 Dreamliner flights.

WestJet Vacations package bookings

The guardian fare program is not available for guests travelling on a WestJet Vacation package.
