WestJet Invites Eastern Triangle Travellers Onboard

Airline offers one-way $17 fares from Toronto to Ottawa and Toronto to Montreal

CALGARY, ALBERTA--(Marketwire - Sept. 5, 2007) - WestJet (TSX:WJA) today announced a one-day $17 fare for guests travelling from Toronto to Ottawa or Montreal, better known as the eastern triangle. This fare is only available for purchase on September 5, 2007 for travel until December 15, 2007.

From September 5 until September 10, 2007, WestJet will also offer guests $49 sale fares for travel until December 15, 2007, between Toronto and Ottawa, and Toronto and Montreal, allowing guests another opportunity to book low fares for travel.

"Our research shows that 90 per cent of WestJet guests, who try us, will fly with us again. We have identified an opportunity to offer our exceptional guest experience to people in Toronto, Ottawa and Montreal, at an inviting price," said Bob Cummings, WestJet's Executive Vice-President of Guest Experience and Marketing. "Our pricing model has not changed since 1996, when we launched service with a cost structure that allowed us to offer airfares below what had ever been seen in the Canadian airline industry. The same cost structure advantage is true today; WestJet is able to offer fares that are proven to increase our market penetration. We believe our record load factors and significant growth this past year have been the results of our low fares and great service."
