This April Fools is no joke.

April 1, 2023

Dear travel partners,

As WestJetters, we pride ourselves on providing a level of care that’s unmatched in the airline industry, and we know travel hasn’t been easy. So, this April Fools, we wanted to do things a little bit differently.

Please take a few moments to read the message below from our CEO, Alexis von Hoensbroech, about our renewed commitment to you and your clients. We want you to feel good about booking WestJet for your clients, and trust that we’ll have them loving where they’re going again.

Thank you for standing by us as we work to elevate your experience with WestJet.


Chuck Crowder, Vice President, Sales
Amanda Ierfino, Director, Sales



This April Fools is no joke.

On a day that’s typically about having a few laughs, we’re serious about renewing our commitment to you. We know travel hasn’t been easy over the past few years. Regardless of the challenges, you deserve friendly, reliable, and affordable service, every time you fly with us.

So, instead of making jokes we’re making changes. We’re growing our fleet and schedule, investing in technology, and improving processes for our people and guests.

Because we want to make sure you’re smiling on the other 364 days of the year too.

CEO, WestJet
