WestJet is to offer members of any airline or travel rewards programme the opportunity to obtain gold status in its WestJet Rewards programme.
“In six years, we have built a loyalty programme that we believe offers the best value to the travelling public,” averred Bob Cummings, WestJet’s EVP Commercial. “We recognise that it can take a long time to reach gold status when starting with a new programme and we believe so strongly in our offering that we invite loyalty members from any airline or travel rewards programme to get gold status from a company that really cares.”
Gold flight benefits will be awarded to those who sign up to become a WestJet Rewards member and provide proof of top-tier status before 23 September 2016, and take a WestJet-marketed flight between then and 31 October 2016.
Eligible WestJet Rewards members who achieve Gold flight status will receive two free checked bags, 10 airport lounge vouchers, four advance seat selection vouchers, have no fee when changing to an earlier or later flight on the same day of travel and advance boarding and priority security screening at selected airports.
Qualifying members can then enjoy these gold flight benefits until 31 December 2017.
