WestJet and Edmonton International Airport Launch Flow-Through Check-In



    CALGARY, Oct. 30 /CNW/ - Members of the media are invited to the grand
opening of WestJet's (TSX:WJA) flow-through check-in at Edmonton International
Airport on Thursday, November 1, 2007 at 10:15 a.m. MT. Spokespeople from
WestJet and Edmonton Airports will make a short presentation and participate
in a ribbon cutting ceremony.
    Flow-through check-in is the future of airport check-in and Edmonton
Airports has undertaken a multi-million dollar renovation to adopt this time
and cost saving check-in set-up.

    
    WHEN:     November 1, 2007
              10:15 a.m. MT (presentation at 10:30 a.m. MT)

    WHERE:    WestJet check-in counters
              Edmonton International Airport
              Departures level, north terminal

    WHAT:     With flow-through check-in guests keep their baggage with them
              after it is tagged and then they place it on a belt themselves.
              Guests move forward through the check-in counters then straight
              through to the baggage belt, creating less congestion than the
              traditional counter set-up.
