CALGARY — WestJet loyalty program WestJet Rewards is launching a series of tiers.
WestJet Rewards members will now receive higher WestJet dollar earn rates and milestone awards with Teal, Silver or Gold tiers. Tiers also offer easy-to-use flight benefits like a free checked bag, lounge and advance seat selection vouchers in Silver.
Gold members receive another free checked bag, advance boarding, priority security screening and other valued amenities.
WestJet Rewards is also launching two limited-time offers for members to achieve Gold flight benefits. The Fast Track offer awards Gold flight benefits to registered members with a qualifying flight spend of $1,500 for WestJet flights flown between Oct. 29 and Jan. 31, 2015. The Status Match offer provides Gold flight benefits to members with top-tier status in another Canadian airline’s frequent flyer program. Members must have a minimum of 25,000 qualifying miles or 25 qualifying flight segments and provide valid proof of status in order to qualify for Status Match.
“We are really excited about launching WestJet Rewards Teal, Silver and Gold tiers. We want our guests to be excited too,” said Marshall Wilmot, WestJet Vice-President, Product and Distribution. “The Fast Track offer gives our members a chance to experience all the great flight benefits of Gold without reaching the annual flight spend requirement. The Status Match offer allows frequent flyers from another airline to try our tier program. Both promotions allow everyone to experience the best of what WestJet Rewards tiers have to offer and, hopefully, members will tell a few friends as well.”
Gold flight benefits include 10 airport lounge vouchers, four advance seat selection vouchers, no charge for first and second checked bags, no fee to change to an earlier or later flight on same day of travel, priority security screening at select airports and advance boarding. Qualifying members will enjoy Gold flight benefits until Feb. 29, 2016.
