CALGARY, Alberta. May 1, 2019.
Today marks the first day of Travel Agent Appreciation Month at WestJet. This is an annual celebration of the airline’s travel trade partners.
“At WestJet, we do not just celebrate a day but rather dedicate the whole month of May to recognizing the hard work and true value of our partners,” said Jane Clementino, WestJet Director, Agency Sales. “The commitment of our partners to providing remarkable travel experiences for our mutual clients does not go unnoticed. This year we are celebrating with 31 days of giveaways where Travel Agents have a chance to win an exciting array of prizes. TA Appreciation Month also coincides with our annual spring Travel Trade Expos, giving us the opportunity to meet many agents and thank them personally for their support.”
Travel Agents can enter to win prizes throughout the month of May and winners will be announced weekly beginning May 15.
Said Clementino, “On behalf of everyone at WestJet and our Agency Sales team, we want to thank the travel trade community for their continued loyalty and being a part of the new WestJet.”
