WestJet flights & tickets

By the 1990’s it was clear to most players in the airline industry that something had to be done to address the world’s need for low cost, affordable airlines. In 1996, WestJet flights began operating based on the brand new, low cost model to great success. Today, the airline is the second largest airline carrier in Canada, behind the country’s flagship carrier Air Canada Airlines, operating around 425 daily flights to Canadian and international destinations around the world. In 2015, Skytrax rated WestJet Airlines as the second best low cost carrier in North America, and the eighth best in the entire world. WestJet’s success can be explained in part by the company’s cornerstone philosophy, which states that just because a passenger pays less, doesn’t mean they have to get less out of their flight.
