WestJet sets new single-day record

WestJet flew 52,992 guests Sunday, setting a new single-day record for the airline. The previous record, set on Dec. 22, 2011, saw 52,397 guests fly across the airline’s network. The new single-day record follows a busy week for travel, which saw students at many Canadian post-secondary institutions head out for mid-term break. In provinces with a Family Day holiday, families took the week off to enjoy a warm-weather vacation. On average, WestJet flies approximately 40,000 guests on 425 flights per day. (
