B737 – Max updated statement

March 12, 2019


WestJet thanks Minister Garneau for his recent address to the public.

The safety of our people and the travelling public are always WestJet’s top priority. We operate one of the youngest fleets in the airline industry and the Boeing 737 MAX 8 was added in October 2017, performing reliably, efficiently and safely on 1,000s of flights since.

WestJet complies with all recommendations and advisories from regulators and manufacturers and we implemented the Boeing operations bulletin and the FAA Airworthiness Directives issued late last year.

WestJet remains actively involved in discussions with Transport Canada, Boeing and fellow Canadian operators of the Boeing MAX 737 aircraft and reassures our guests and employees that we will continue to fly with their safety and best interests at the forefront.
