Enhancements to Sabre Branded Fares

On Tuesday, May 4, 2021, WestJet enhanced how our Branded Fares are displayed for Sabre users. This change was made to enhance how we display our Branded Fares product and features.  As part of this change, we have also updated our Branded Fares codes.

Enhanced displays

Sabre users will now see attributes associated to their fares, such as baggage allowance, pre-reserved seats, Lounge access, to name a few.

Users will continue to select the fare details and Brand options and the new enhanced display will now indicate related attributes associated to the respective Branded Fares.

For users who shop with our Branded Fare codes within fare quotes, pricing commands or as part of your automated scripting, you will need to update from our old two-character brand codes to our enhanced Branded Fare codes.
