WestJet and Edmonton International Airport Launch Flow-Through Check-In

CALGARY, ALBERTA--(Marketwire - Oct. 30, 2007) - Members of the media are invited to the grand opening of WestJet's (TSX:WJA) flow-through check-in at Edmonton International Airport on Thursday, November 1, 2007 at 10:15 a.m. MT. Spokespeople from WestJet and Edmonton Airports will make a short presentation and participate in a ribbon cutting ceremony.

Flow-through check-in is the future of airport check-in and Edmonton Airports has undertaken a multi-million dollar renovation to adopt this time and cost saving check-in set-up.

WHEN: November 1, 2007
10:15 a.m. MT (presentation at 10:30 a.m. MT)

WHERE: WestJet check-in counters
Edmonton International Airport
Departures level, north terminal

WHAT: With flow-through check-in guests keep their baggage with them
after it is tagged and then they place it on a belt
themselves. Guests move forward through the check-in counters
then straight through to the baggage belt, creating less
congestion than the traditional counter set-up.
