WestJet extends international sun flight suspension

WestJet has extended its temporary suspension of international flights to holiday destinations in Mexico and the Caribbean until June 4, 2021.

WestJet president and CEO Ed Sims said: “We are extending our suspension with the clear expectation that as more Canadians are vaccinated, government policy will transition.

“We continue to advocate for the replacement of mandatory hotel quarantines with a testing regime that is equitable and consistent with global standards at all points of entry into our country.

“Alongside an accelerated and successful vaccine rollout, this policy transition will support the safe restart of travel and help stimulate the Canadian economy, where one in ten jobs are tourism related.”

Guests with affected itineraries will be notified of the cancellations and be refunded their cash.
