WestJet Updates Max Schedule through February 4, 2020

WestJet continues to work with Transport Canada and other regulators while awaiting the impending software enhancements and training requirements for the Boeing MAX aircraft.

With timing for return to service is still uncertain, WestJet has updated our flight schedule to remove the MAX from January 5 through February 4, 2020. Proactively removing the aircraft allows reliability and reassurance for our guests as they look to book during the busy winter travel season.

We understand the uncertainty our guests, WestJetters and partners have faced, and we thank them again for their continued patience. We look forward to returning the aircraft, safer than ever, to the skies.

The following routes have been adjusted. Route suspensions are temporary, and WestJet remains committed to resuming these flights once our MAX fleet returns to service:
