Today, 6,900 WestJetters are receiving notices confirming early retirements, early outs and both voluntary and involuntary leaves. This is devastating news for all WestJetters. The fact that we avoided a potentially worse outcome is testament to the spirit and selfless attitude demonstrated by our people, who have enabled WestJet to continue operating with a collective remaining workforce of 7,100.
We commend those who are standing down so that our airline can stand up.
The WestJet YouTube channel features viral hits like our Christmas Miracle and April Fool’s videos. It also includes pro travel tips, essentials from our vacation hot spots and cool aviation videos that showcase the aircraft we fly and what it’s like to work in the airline industry.
#WestJetChristmas is about spreading the spirit of the Christmas season far and wide. Since 2012, we've been surprising people around the world with unique experiences, and sharing fun videos of these moments. Merry Christmas everyone!
