WestJet Launches Get Set for Mac Users

CALGARY, ALBERTA--(CCNMatthews - Nov. 23, 2006) - WestJet (TSX:WJA) today announced the launch of Get Set for Mac users, an application that runs directly on a Mac desktop delivering instantaneous information on WestJet flights, vacation packages and hot deals from WestJet partners directly to computers.

"We initially launched Get Set in September for PC users so we are delighted today to be able to offer this great tool to all Mac users. All our guests have different travel needs and busy schedules. With Get Set our guests know when we've found a match for their travel preferences and brings the best WestJet deals and partner specials directly to them." said Dave Jones, WestJet's Director of E-business.

We have had some great feedback from our guests who use a PC, and we are confident that once our Mac guests try Get Set, they will see how easy it is to use and how much time it saves. In addition, the Get Set application provides quick and easy access to popular WestJet travel tools like Web check-in, Flight Reminders, Flight Tracker and flight schedules.

Guests can start planning their next trip by clicking on the "Download" button located at westjet.com/getset. When they hear Get Set's "bing bong" seatbelt sound, they will know their trip is just a click away. Now, get ready....Get Set....go!
