Westjet just announced their important changes for your safety.
A message from Vice President Billy Nolen
Reduced contact at check-in
Your check in experience will be close to what you’re used to: at the kiosk or the check-in counter. We’ll be wiping surfaces between guests, you’ll have more room as you wait in line, and we’ll let you handle your own bags.
Enhanced safety screening
For the safety of all our guests and crew, we have enhanced our screening at boarding. We’ll ask health questions required by Transport Canada, take your temperature without contact, and ensure that you have your own mask to wear on your flight.
Face masks during travel
Transport Canada requires that all travelers over 2 years old, wear a face covering. You’ll need to bring a face mask or scarf with you to wear throughout your travel journey.
Distance in seating and cart service
We’re giving you more space on your journey. We’re limiting seats onboard to ensure you and our WestJetters can continue to fly safely. Families traveling together can sit together.
If you’re on a flight that’s over 90 minutes, you can expect a snack and bottled water for you at your seat as you board. We won’t be serving drinks or food on flights under 90 minutes, so stay hydrated and enjoy a meal before heading to the airport.
Create an environment as clean as possible, with fresh air introduced into the cabin every 2-3 minutes and hospital-quality filters.
