CALGARY — The Canadian Competition Bureau has given Onex Corporation the green light to acquire WestJet.
By issuing a no-action letter, the Bureau has granted unconditional approval for the proposed transaction between the two companies.
Said Ed Sims, WestJet’s President and Chief Executive Officer: “Receiving unconditional approval from the Canadian Competition Bureau is another important step on our path to closing the transaction. We continue to engage with the relevant authorities on the remaining approvals.”

The transaction is expected to close in the fourth quarter of 2019.
