CALGARY, Sept. 9 /CNW/ - WestJet today announced it is offering a package of 20 one-way flights for $2,000 between Toronto and Montréal, and Toronto and Ottawa.

This industry-leading offer is available for purchase until September 30, 2009. There are no change or cancel fees, blackout periods or booking restrictions involved, and guests have one year from date of purchase in which to use the passes, which are fully transferable. The package also includes five passes to the latest third party guest lounge, Plaza Premium, at Toronto's Pearson International Airport.

"Without a doubt, this is the very best offer available in the market today," said Bob Cummings, WestJet Executive Vice-President of Guest Experience and Marketing. "The high degree of flexibility will appeal to our most-frequent guests, especially the business traveller who wants the ability to change or cancel plans at the last minute. And at a fare of $100 per one-way flight, including most taxes and fees, locked in for 12 months from the day the package is purchased, guests can buy the package knowing exactly what they'll pay for their next 20 flights."

WestJet is an excellent choice for frequent travellers. "We do not overbook our flights, we are Canada's only airline with live seatback television, we have premium leather seats with ample legroom, and were the first airline in North America to introduce web check-in via mobile devices," added Bob Cummings.

The small print:

This package is available for sale only until midnight MDT on September 30, 2009. It includes 20 one-way vouchers for flights between Toronto and Montreal, and between Toronto and Ottawa, at a total cost of $2,000 plus applicable sales tax (GST, HST or QST).
