Airline introduces a dedicated website for transporting cargo

CALGARY, April 25, 2012 /CNW/ - WestJet this week launched a new stand-alone website,, allowing guests to better utilize the airline's cargo shipping services.

The site's new features include the ability to:

  • book, trace and track cargo shipments individually and in real time through an online tool
  • access the most up-to-date shipping guidelines
  • view a current list of shipping restrictions and embargoes
  • request waybills and make claims online
  • receive answers to frequently asked questions

"We are so pleased to introduce a new tool to serve guests looking to use WestJet's cargo services," said Henry Nizynski, WestJet Director of Business Development. "Since 1996 WestJet Cargo has leveraged the airline's commitment to on-time performance and a great guest experience, which extends to how we ship their items through our network."

The launch of a dedicated website is a natural next step for WestJet Cargo, which began working with Exp-Air Cargo Ltd in 2010. This new relationship triggered a number of developments including a new payment structure, a system upgrade and a new sales team. WestJet Cargo currently serves 21 domestic stations with plans to expand into the U.S. and Mexico in the near future.
