WestJet offers Calgarians extra sun this spring

         Limited time, extra flights provide more choices for Calgary

    CALGARY, May 12 /CNW/ - With the temporary suspension of flights to
Mexico due to the H1N1 virus, WestJet today announced additions to other sun
destinations from Calgary.
    "Part of our success comes from our ability to cost-effectively deploy
our fleet," said Chris Avery, WestJet Vice-President of Revenue and Planning.
"With extra aircraft time available due to the temporary suspension of service
to Mexico, we saw an opportunity to provide Calgarians with more flights to
some great cities. Throw in some terrific low fares and you have a great deal
on a spring getaway."
    For the first two weeks in June, WestJet will be offering the following
additional flights.

    Route                     Day of departure   Fares from

continued Chris Avery. "With WestJet's industry-leading Care-antee, guests can
book knowing they are covered should their travel plans go awry."
