WestJet Launches Web Check In for Transborder and International Flights



    Airline adds increased functionality to list of check in options for
    guests

    CALGARY, Sept. 18 /CNW/ - WestJet (TSX:WJA) today launched Web check in
for guests flying to and from scheduled transborder (U.S.) and international
destinations. The airline launched Web check in for domestic flights in April
2004. Now guests travelling to any WestJet destination can check in online any
time from 24 hours up to one hour before their flight.
    "WestJet continues to bring new innovations to our guests," said
Dale Tinevez, WestJet Vice-President of Airports. "We are committed to
offering the best possible guest experience from the time of booking to final
destination arrival, and the check-in process plays a large part in that
experience. Close to 60 per cent of our guests use a self-serve check-in
option within Canada, and we believe we will see the same with our growing
transborder and international service."
    WestJet guests now have four options for check in; Web check in, Mobile
check in, kiosk check in, and traditional counter check in. WestJet was
recently the first airline in North America to launch the electronic boarding
pass (for domestic flights only). To learn more about these products go to
