Our fleet


WestJet operates a modern fleet comprised of Boeing 767-300, and the Boeing Next-Generation 737-600, 737-700 and 737-800 aircraft. WestJet Encore operates a fleet of Bombardier Q400 NextGen turboprops.

  • WestJet - jet aircraft

      Our 737-700 and 737-800 series aircraft are equipped with Blended Winglet Technology by Aviation Partners Boeing which improves the 737's aerodynamic performance and handling characteristics, boosts operational flight range and reduces fuel burn by up to four per cent.

      The first three rows of our 737 aircraft have additional legroom (36 in. seat pitch). The first four rows of our 767 aircraft also have additional legroom (38 in. seat pitch). These seats are available for selection when booking a Plus fare. Guests booking Econo and Flex fares may reserve these seats for a fee, during the 24-hour check-in window.

      The 737-600 and 737-700 series have one lavatory at the front of the aircraft and one at the back; galleys are also located at the front and at the back. The 737-800 series has a single lavatory at the front, two at the back and galleys at both the front and back of the aircraft. Our 767-300 aircraft have seven lavatories.

      Please be aware that seats split on either side of the aisle are offset on our 737-700 aircraft. This means that seats C and D are not directly beside each other, even when in the same numbered row.
