Westjet now launches free flight change, extra baggage allowance with Plus

Canadian carrier Westjet said it has launched Plus as part of the airline´s fare bundle roll-out offering additional flexibility comfort and convenience to guests looking for more options.

According to Wesjet, Plus includes complimentary flight change and cancel options, extra baggage allowance (two free checked bags), extra legroom (36-inch seat pitch), a complimentary food item and alcoholic beverages from our inflight menu, advance boarding and overhead bin space and priority security screening at available airports.

Plus completes the fare bundle launch that began earlier this year with the fleet reconfiguration, creating additional legroom in the first three rows of seating in all of WestJet´s 103 Boeing (NYSE: BA) Next Generation 737 aircraft.

Westjet guests can now choose Econo, Flex, or Plus fares at time of booking at westjet.com, via our Sales Super Centre at 1-888-WESTJET (937-8538), or through their preferred travel agent based on individual itinerary and travel requirements.

By offering three fare levels, WestJet continues to provide Canadians with affordable travel options along with its signature fun, friendly and caring service.

To ensure availability, guests wishing to purchase Plus are encouraged to do so in advance of their flight. Based on availability, guests who purchase Econo and Flex fares may select a seat in Plus for a fee at check-in and receive priority boarding, first access to overhead bin space, added legroom and complimentary food and beverages or on board the aircraft to receive additional legroom and complimentary food and beverages.

WestJet operates a fleet of more than 100 Boeing Next-Generation 737 and Bombardier (TSX: BBD-B) Q400 NextGen aircraft.
