Growth & expansion key focus at WestJet’s annual client event

CANCUN — WestJet tipped its hat to its top partners at an annual key client event in Mexico, which took place from April 11-14 at Secrets The Vine Cancun.

The three-day conference welcomed partners from across North America, and was attended by key WestJet executives, including Lyell Farquharson, Vice-President, Sales and Distribution.

“This event gives us the opportunity to offer our partners insight into WestJet’s vision for the future, and how we’re going to realize that vision,” he said. “The key takeaway is that as we grow into a global leader, we will remain caring at our core. Our people, our culture, our guests and our partnerships are always top of mind.”

Farquharson also thanked WestJet’s “generous partner”, AMResorts, for “hosting us at Secrets The Vine Cancun over the past few days.”

The airline’s long-term plans for international expansion were a central topic at the event. Other areas of discussion included WestJet’s Boeing 787 Dreamliner aircraft, the development of its three hubs (Calgary, Toronto and Vancouver) through enhanced schedules and better connectivity, the growth of premium travellers, as well as airline partnerships.
