On Friday afternoon, June 5, WestJet flight WS588 from Toronto to Montreal skidded off the end of the runway upon landing, safely stopping on the grass at the end of the runway.

Our primary concern is always for the safety and well-being of our guests and crew. All are reported safe at this time.

We offloaded guests shortly after with all guests exiting the aircraft via air stairs and then walked to the bus provided by Montreal airport authorities. Friends and family were gathered together to await their loved ones in arrivals. The aircraft will be removed from service for full inspection, and WestJet will work with the Transportation Safety Board of Canada to investigate this incident.

We’d like to thank the fast-acting first responders and our partners at the Montreal airport authority for seeing to the safety of our guests and crew. Thanks also to those who have reached out showing concern for all involved.
