Since our first flight in 1996, we’ve sought to enrich the lives of everyone in our world by providing safe, friendly and affordable air travel. Right from the start, we put our guests and our people first; in doing so, we’ve become one of Canada’s most admired and respected corporate cultures. We’ve also had a lot of fun along the way. Today, flying to more than 100 destinations, we stay true to our principles and continue to strive for the highest standards of service and success.
WestJet was founded in 1996 by Clive Beddoe and a team of like-minded partners, who believed that just because you pay less for your flight, doesn’t mean you should get less.
Armed with that philosophy, three aircraft, five destinations and 220 friendly WestJetters, we began our journey — a journey that would help us become a company of more than 12,000 passionate WestJetters flying our fleet of Boeing 737 Next-Generation aircraft to more than 100 destinations across our network. Our continued efforts toward responsible growth consider our impact to the environment, to the communities where we fly and to and the people we reach on a daily basis.
