WestJet Care Crew hits the streets of Yellowknife



    Airline employees deliver acts of caring in Canada's North

    CALGARY, May 19 /CNW/ - WestJet today announced that a dedicated team of
WestJetters called the WestJet Care Crew will be visiting Yellowknife from May
20 to 22, 2009, to demonstrate WestJet's caring spirit. This initiative is an
extension of the airline's popular "Because Owners Care" advertising campaign
that takes the caring attitude demonstrated by WestJetters every day across
our 55-city network.
    "Our WestJetters demonstrate our caring culture every day and are excited
to bring this experience off the airplane, out of the airports and into the
communities we serve," said WestJet Vice-President of Marketing, Lauri Feser.
"We're especially excited to be able to bring this experience to Yellowknife,
where we look forward to meeting new people and making new friends."
    WestJet launched seasonal non-stop service between Edmonton and
Yellowknife on May 4, 2009.
    The WestJet Care Crew will arrive in Yellowknife on Wednesday, May 20, at
12:47 p.m., and spend the next several days demonstrating our caring culture
in a variety of ways.
    Earlier this spring, WestJet Care Crews performed acts of caring in
Abbotsford, Vancouver, Edmonton, Saskatoon, Fort McMurray, Toronto, Ottawa,
Montréal, Quebec City, Hamilton and London.
