Westjet Sets New One Day Record


THUNDER BAY – If it seemed busier in the airport on Friday, it is possible that you, and thousands of others were jetting off for the weekend. The results from the day are a new one day record for Westjet.

WestJetters are giving thanks as a record number of guests chose to fly with WestJet today. The airline set a new single-day record with 49,545 guests travelling on-board flights in WestJet’s network leading into the Canadian Thanksgiving weekend.

“At a time when everyone expresses their thanks, WestJet is thankful for each and every guest who chose to fly with WestJet today and to all guests who continue to choose us as their favourite airline,” said Bob Cummings, Executive Vice-President, Marketing and Sales. “It makes us feel so good to be able to bring so many families and friends together for the Thanksgiving holiday.”

The previous single-day record was 46,757, set on the Friday before Thanksgiving in 2008. On average, WestJet flies approximately 40,000 guests across its 71-city network each day.
