WestJet introduces self-serve, post-booking seat selection

WestJet highlights IATA’s new process for accessing settlement statements

CALGARY — As of June 30, all Canadian accredited and TIDS travel agents will be required to access their settlement statements using BSPLink. Statements for GDS bookings are already available on BSPLink, but this will be a new process for bookings made through WestJet Agent. Commission for WestJet Agent bookings will continue to be settled through TIESS as it is today. This change has been mandated by IATA and will be in effect industry-wide.

With BSPLink, you will be able to easily access your online settlement statements for all air transactions. You will also be able to download available statements in a PDF format.

Effective June 30, this is where you will access your statements and settle your commission:

  • WestJet Agent: BSPLink (Access settlement statements); TIESS (Commission settlement)
  • GDS: BSPLInk (Access settlement statements); BSPLink (Commission settlement)

In order to prepare for this transition, all travel agents will require an active BSPLink account before June 30, 2017. Your banking information must be registered on BSPLink in order to access your statements.

Please note these changes only apply to air bookings. Commission on WestJet Vacations bookings will continue to be settled through TIESS and there will be no change to how you receive your statements.
