WestJet Airlines Careers and Employment

About us
WestJet is embarking upon a transformative era, transitioning from a successful low-cost carrier (LCC) founded in 1996, to a global, full service network carrier with the delivery of Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner aircraft in 2020. In support of our global expansion and offering more affordable travel opportunities to all Canadians, WestJet has recently launched – more... an ultra-low cost carrier (ULCC), Swoop, a wholly-owned subsidiary.

With approximately 14,000 ambitious WestJetters across WestJet mainline, Encore, WestJet Vacations, and Swoop the business continues to rapidly increase in complexity and scale. The velocity of change across all major functions has generated an acute focus on innovation, technology, and scaling our next adventure with a nimble, growth mindset. It is through our strong values that WestJetters passionately believe in putting the humanity back in flying by treating our guests with the compassion and care they deserve.


WestJet is proud to be named Best Airline in Canada and one of the best Low Cost Airlines in North America, based on authentic reviews from the travelling public on Trip Advisor, the world’s largest travel site. We are one of very few airlines globally that does not commercially overbook.


Come fly with us and love where you're going.
