WestJet gets the pixie-dust treatment


Airline offers a little Disney-inspired magic on board flights during the month of August

CALGARY, Aug. 1, 2012 /CNW/ - WestJet and WestJet Vacations today announced that guests on board WestJet flights can expect an extra-special inflight experience as part of their travels during the month of August.

Working with the Walt Disney Company (Canada) Ltd., WestJet is launching a unique inflight experience with a little Disney-inspired magic on board. Guests will receive complimentary Disney-themed snacks and napkins while enjoying free Disney cartoons and movies on seatback televisions throughout the flight. On select routes, guests will also enjoy Disney-themed jokes, fun facts and a complimentary gift.

"We hope our guests remember WestJet when they plan their winter vacations, which they usually start to think about as summer comes to a close," said Lauri Feser, WestJet's Vice-President, Marketing. "This month-long campaign is a reminder to our guests that we believe our award-winning culture of care and having fun on board can help create a special vacation. We want to add a little bit of inflight magic to families' holiday memories."

WestJet Vacations is pleased to offer a wide range of flexible and affordable vacation packages at Aulani, a Disney Resort & Spa in Hawaii, and a wide selection of hotels at the Disneyland Resort in California and the Walt Disney World Resort in Florida. Guests who book a vacation package can be sure to receive the best price with the WestJet Vacations price guarantee. Under its terms, should an identical WestJet Vacations package decrease in price at any time prior to 21 days before departure, guests and travel agents can call WestJet Vacations and the difference in cost will be refunded to the original form of payment. The guarantee can also be used multiple times should the price continue to drop.

The WestJet Vacations price guarantee is offered to guests who book a minimum three-night WestJet Vacations package before October 31, 2012, for travel between September 4, 2012, and June 27, 2013.

For guests considering a fall getaway to the Disneyland Resort in California, WestJet Vacations is pleased to offer its popular kids fly free promotion. For every adult that flies, one child flies free when you book a minimum three-night WestJet Vacations package from select Western Canadian cities to any of WestJet Vacations' properties in Los Angeles or Orange County-Anaheim, California. Offer is valid for bookings made by August 31, 2012, for travel between September 4 and October 31, 2012.
