WestJet returns to the Québec Winter Carnival

Airline sponsors world-renowned event for third year in a row

CALGARY, Jan. 28 /CNW/ - WestJet today announced its sponsorship of the Québec Winter Carnival, which runs from January 28 to February 13, 2011.

"WestJet is thrilled to be the official airline of the Québec Winter Carnival for the third year in a row," said Richard Bartrem, WestJet Vice-President of Communications and Community Relations. "In December 2010, we launched expanded non-stop service from Quebec City to Cancun and Fort Lauderdale, which represents WestJet's ongoing commitment to Calgary's sister city."

At the heart of WestJet's partnership with Québec Winter Carnival is the WestJet zip line across the Plains of Abraham. The WestJet zip line makes history thrilling as riders fly 500 feet across this important historical site.

The WestJet Fun 'n Festivals Series helps bring people and celebration together by sponsoring over 25 festivals around the country. This year, you'll find WestJet Fun 'n Festival Series at the following four winter festivals: Québec Winter Carnival, Ottawa Winterlude, Okanagan Winter Wine Festival and Moncton HubCap Comedy Festival.
