CALGARY, May 10, 2013 /CNW/ - WestJet today announced it has once again
been named Canada's most-preferred airline in a national study of
Canadian flyers conducted in April of this year by Leger Marketing. The
study also rated WestJet as the most trusted airline and the airline
that offers the best customer service.
In a separate study also conducted by Leger Marketing, WestJet is also
ranked as the most reputable transportation company in Canada. Leger's
Canadian Corporate Reputation Study ranked the airline tops among six
airlines, rail and bus companies.
Last week, WestJet was named Canada's most attractive employer for the
second year in a row. The award is given by Randstad Canada, a
staffing, recruitment and HR company. Also last week, WestJet ranked
second in overall reputation in the Reputation Institute/Canadian
Business 2013 Most Reputable Companies in Canada survey, second only to
Tim Horton's and ahead of companies like Kraft Food, IBM and even
Apple. WestJet was also the highest-ranked Canadian company in the
survey for corporate governance and workplace.
"To be nationally recognized not once but four times in about a week is
truly humbling," said Gregg Saretsky, WestJet President and CEO. "These
accolades are a testament to our caring culture, which is driven by our
more than 9,000 engaged and spirited WestJetters. As we grow and evolve
our network and products to meet the changing needs of our guests, we
remain focused on caring service and delivering a great guest
experience. These are the things that make us different, and the proud
Canadian company we are today."
WestJet is Canada's most-preferred airline, offering scheduled service
to 85 destinations in North America, Central America and the Caribbean.
Powered by an award-winning culture of care, WestJet pioneered low-cost
flying in Canada. Recognized nationally as a top employer, WestJet now
has more than 9,000 WestJetters across Canada. Operating a fleet of
more than 100 Boeing Next-Generation 737 and Bombardier Q400 NextGen
