WestJet cuts fares – and a cake – to celebrate 19th birthday

CALGARY, Feb. 27, 2015 /CNW/ - Canada's most-preferred airline will mark its 19th birthday with a special one-day seat sale today featuring great fares on more than 5,000 seats to some of its most-popular destinations, including Las Vegas, Hawaii, Dublin, Ireland, Glasgow, Scotland, Montego Bay, Cancun and select Canadian cities.

"WestJet is Canada's low-fare leader and today, as we approach two decades of service to Canadians, we want to celebrate with a very special birthday seat sale," said Bob Cummings, WestJet's Executive Vice-President, Sales, Marketing and Guest Experience. "This sale, which features total fares starting from $61.03, including a base fare of just $19, marks our 19th anniversary. It's fitting that we offer our guests some of the best fares in our history to show our appreciation for their loyalty and support over the years."
