WestJet has launched its new Plus product – featuring an empty middle seat, added services and upgraded meal options on longer flights – on all of its Boeing Next-Generation 737 aircraft.
The middle seats of the Plus cabins on-board WestJet’s 737s 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.
“These changes mark the next step in the evolution of our popular Plus product,” commented Marshall Wilmot, WestJet’s SVP 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. I encourage travellers to compare our Plus fares against premium fares on other airlines. At a time when many are concerned about their costs, our low fares, Plus product, schedule and rewards programme have never been more attractive than they are today.”
