Taking place at Marival Armony Luxury Resort & Suites, the event was attended by 40 TAAB members from across Canada representing both leisure and corporate agents.

“It has been an exciting year for WestJet but there is even more to come in 2020,” said Crowder. “The TAAB meeting in Puerto Vallarta was a great opportunity for us to share where we’re going as an airline and get some valuable insight into what our trade partners would like to see from us in the coming year.”
The event also included Corporate and Leisure workshops hosted by WestJet representatives on topics that included Airport Operations, Network Planning, WestJet Vacations and corporate travel.
Said Clementino: “Since the creation of the TAAB five years ago, the feedback from our members has resulted in the implementation of more than 75 initiatives. We look forward to continuing this partnership and working together to introduce even more enhancements that benefit our travel partners.”
