WestJet Celebrates Its Twelfth Birthday With $12 Sale on Eastern Triangle Flights

Airline offers one-way $12 fares for guests travelling between Toronto and Montreal or Toronto and Ottawa

CALGARY, ALBERTA--(Marketwire - Feb. 28, 2008) - In celebration of its twelfth birthday, WestJet (TSX:WJA) today announced a one-day $12 birthday sale within the Eastern triangle. Guests travelling between Toronto and Montreal or Ottawa (both directions), can take advantage of the $12 fares by booking on February 28 for travel between March 1 and June 25, 2008.

"WestJet is 12 years old tomorrow and we are excited to celebrate with a birthday inspired sale," said Bob Cummings, WestJet Executive Vice-President of Guest Experience and Marketing. "We estimate that WestJet now has over 20 per cent of the Eastern triangle market share and believe this is a result of our enhanced network and exceptional guest experience delivered every day by our great WestJetters.

"We like to encourage potential guests to try us and as a result, over 90 per cent of new guests come back and recommend us to their family, friends and associates. Our guests' recommendations are one of our most potent marketing channels.

"After 12 years, demand for WestJet service is more popular than ever. This positions us well for the remainder of 2008 as we grow our fleet from 73 Next-Generation Boeing 737 aircraft to 77 by year end."

WestJet will also offer guests one-day sale fares as low as $39 on other routes. Following are the details of WestJet's one-day twelfth birthday sale.
