WestJet Comments on Canadian Transportation Agency Decision

CALGARY, ALBERTA--(Marketwire - Jan. 10, 2008) - WestJet (TSX:WJA) today commented on the decision handed down by the Canadian Transportation Agency regarding the one-passenger-one-fare application.

The decision mandates that Canadian air carriers operating a domestic air service provide free seating for certain persons with disabilities. Those who require an attendant or an extra seat to accommodate a disability are to be entitled to the additional seat without charge.

WestJet remains committed to providing excellent service to all their guests, including guests with disabilities. The scope of this decision is long and complex. Once WestJet has had an opportunity to fully review and evaluate the decision, they will comment further.
