WestJet Thanks Prince Georgians

Airline offers one-day sale on most popular routes leaving from Prince George

CALGARY, ALBERTA--(Marketwire - March 18, 2008) - To thank its Prince George guests for continued support, WestJet (TSX:WJA) today announced a one-day sale for guests travelling from Prince George to Vancouver, Kelowna, Calgary and Edmonton. Fares as low as $49 are only available for purchase on March 18, 2008 for travel between April 1, 2008 and May 14, 2008.

"Our research shows that 90 per cent of WestJet guests who try us, will fly with us again," 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. We have identified an opportunity to offer our exceptional guest experience to loyal and new Prince Georgian guests at a great price.

Thank you to the over 200,000 Prince George guests who boarded our live seatback television equipped Next-Generation Boeing 737s last year. Our steady growth in Prince George is due to the expanding loyal base of guests that we hope to take advantage of today's offer, in addition to encouraging other Prince Georgians to try WestJet."
