Effective today, WestJet will launch its new Plus product on all Boeing Next-Generation 737 aircraft featuring an empty middle seat, added services and upgraded meal options on longer flights.
“These changes mark the next step in the evolution of our popular Plus product,” said Marshall Wilmot, WestJet Senior Vice-President, Marketing and Digital. “Business travellers and vacationers alike will appreciate more personal space and comfort, added services like hot towels, upgraded meal options and booking flexibility. Our Plus fare, combined with our expanding network and the benefits of WestJet Rewards membership, demonstrates our focus on adding exceptional value for our guests.”
Guests seated in Plus enjoy more legroom and elbow room. On WestJet’s fleet of Boeing 737s the middle seats in Plus will be blocked and will soon be outfitted with a new middle seat console between the aisle and window seat, giving guests more space and privacy.
Seats in Plus on WestJet’s Boeing 767 aircraft will be wider than the 737 aircraft seats, arranged in a two-two-two configuration with an aisle separating each set of two seats. Premium hot meal selections are also included.
“I encourage travellers to compare our Plus fares against premium fares on other airlines,” Marshall Wilmot continued, “At a time when many are concerned about their costs, our low fares, Plus product, schedule and rewards program have never been more attractive than they are today.”
