We believe every journey has the potential to enrich lives, and that belief will drive us further for our guests and for ourselves. When we fly a global airline, nothing can be left to chance, guests put their trust in us every day. It is through our pride and ability to work together to win that makes WestJet unique as an airline.
WestJet is embarking upon a transformative era, transitioning from a successful low-cost carrier (LCC) founded in 1996, to a global, full service network carrier with the delivery of Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner aircraft in 2019. In support of our global expansion and offering more affordable travel opportunities to all Canadians, WestJet has recently launched an ultra-low cost carrier (ULCC), Swoop, a wholly-owned subsidiary.
With approximately 14,000 ambitious WestJetters across WestJet mainline, Encore, WestJet Vacations, and Swoop the business continues to rapidly increase in complexity and scale. The velocity of change across all major functions has generated an acute focus on innovation, technology, and scaling our next adventure with a nimble, growth mindset. It is through our strong values that WestJetters passionately believe in putting the humanity back in flying by treating our guests with the compassion and care they deserve.
WestJet is proud to be named Best Airline in Canada and one of the best Low Cost Airlines in North America, based on authentic reviews from the travelling public on Trip Advisor, the world’s largest travel site. We are one of very few airlines globally that does not commercially overbook.
We are authentically Canadian, uniquely WestJet. Come fly with us and love where you're going.
