About the WestJet blog

WestJet was founded in 1996 by Clive Beddoe and a team of like-minded partners, who believed that just because you pay less for your flight, doesn’t mean you should get less. What originally started with 220 employees (a.k.a. WestJetters), three Boeing 737 aircraft and five destinations in Western Canada has grown into more than 120 aircraft flying throughout a network of more than 90 destinations in Canada, USA, Mexico, the Caribbean, Central America and Europe. Sure, it’s our aircraft that will take you to your destination, but it is WestJet’s caring owners and award-winning corporate culture that sets us apart from the other airlines.

The WestJet blog is where we bring our stories to life. Here, we allow our guests to catch a glimpse of what goes on behind the scenes, learn more about the amazing destinations we fly to, and see what makes the airline industry tick. We have a diverse group of authors and share blog posts from WestJetters around our network. So, if you’re looking for the perfect activity to compliment your beach vacation or want to know what it’s like to work at the airport, or are an unabashed aviation geek who wants to know more about our aircraft and operations, you’re in the right place. Our goal is to share stories, videos, and photos that will educate and inspire you.

We are interested in hearing what you have to say and welcome your comments. Please be mindful that others may not share the same point of view so we ask everyone to be respectful of others. We reserve the right to delete content containing insults, profanity, or offensive language. We will also delete any harassment, spam or advertising.

Finally, a note about individual customer service – the WestJet blog is not the place to address your individual customer service issue or find a resolution to a problem. It’s not that we don’t want to hear what you have to say – we definitely do – but we have a dedicated system to help you much more quickly. We have a dedicated team of WestJetters who are eager to help so we ask you to use our interactive feedback page to share your concerns with us and provide your contact info so our Guest Support team can follow up. If you’re looking for help with a reservation, please visit westjet.com or call 1-888-WESTJET (1-888-937-8538).
