WestJet launches unique seat sale in partnership with
Canadian Tourism Commission
June 10, 2010
WestJet Airlines today launched a unique seat sale offer that provides increased savings on summer travel within Canada. The offer, which is part of the Canadian Tourism Commission's (CTC) Locals Know campaign to promote travel within Canada, provides greater savings when more people book and fly together.
The offer gives guests an extra 10 per cent savings off WestJet's already low fares when two people book and fly together within Canada; 15 per cent in savings when three people book and fly together; and 20 per cent savings when four or more book and fly together. The offer is for bookings made between June 10 and June 15, 2010, for travel before December 15, 2010. These savings are valid on all fares, including any seat sale offers that may be available.
'This offer is designed to allow travellers from coast to coast the opportunity to visit our spectacular country,' said Bob Cummings, WestJet Executive Vice-President of Marketing and Sales. 'Canadians have over six months to discover the many places across Canada that truly are gems. The news today allows families and friends to share in this experience.'
'The savings available are substantial,' continued Bob Cummings. 'For example, a family of four booking within Canada during a seat sale can save an additional 20 per cent with this promotion. WestJetters across the country look forward to welcoming guests on board as they head out to discover Canada.'
'We're thrilled to partner with WestJet on this unique travel deal,' says Michele McKenzie, President and CEO of the CTC. 'We've been inspiring Canadians to explore their country through the Locals Know campaign, and we hope this new incentive will encourage them to book their vacation in Canada this summer.'
Travel must be booked by June 15, 2010 (11:59 p.m. MDT) for travel until December 15, 2010. Blackout dates are October 7, 8, 9, 11 and 12, 2010. Taxes, fees and surcharges are extra where applicable. Advance purchase is required. Seats at these fares are limited and may not be available on all flights. Seat sale is valid on new bookings only and is 100 per cent non-refundable. Offer is combinable with other fares. Flights may not operate on certain days. All fares are one way. Discount is applied based on the number of guests travelling. Guests must be booked on the same reservation and complete travel together. Cancellation of one or more guests on one reservation may lead to a forfeiture of discount.
