WestJet today announced that we are complying with Transport Canada’s decision to temporarily ground the Boeing 737 MAX fleet. The announcement was made by Transport Minister Marc Garneau this morning in Ottawa.
We respect the decision made by Transport Canada and are in the process of grounding the 13 MAX aircraft in our fleet. This decision has an impact on the travel plans of our WestJet guests and we ask for understanding as we work to rebook all guests affected as quickly as possible.
We have 162 aircraft or more than 92 per cent of our overall fleet that remain in service. Guests can book with confidence knowing that we continue to fly throughout the network with the safety of guests and employees at the forefront.
We are contacting impacted guests to arrange for alternate travel plans.
