WestJet posts strong February results

WestJet reports a February load factor of 82.7%, posting a 9.9% year-over-year increase in revenue passenger miles (RPMs), and its capacity, measured in available seat miles (ASMs), grew 10.9% over the same period. The carrier’s president and CEO, Gregg Saretsky commented: “We celebrated WestJet’s 16th birthday this February, flew a record number of guests for the month and also set a new single-day record for guests flown. We are pleased with our strong February load factor, given the capacity increases, and our forward bookings are healthy. I want to thank all WestJetters for their dedication to delivering a remarkable guest experience as we continue to welcome more and more guests on board.” Go to for more.
