Canadian airline, WestJet is on a roll. Following the recent launch of its Boeing 787 Dreamliner services from Calgary to London (Gatwick), Paris and Dublin, WestJet is now offering guests travelling across its global network an enhanced range of amenities and on-board experiences on its Boeing 787, 767 and 737 transatlantic services. The airline also says that customers can expect to see further updates continue to roll across the WestJet fleet throughout 2019 and 2020.
The enhanced WestJet experience will begin as passengers board the aircraft, as they enjoy the Boarding Sessions, a soundtrack of soulful boarding music from Canadian Juno award-winning recording artist, Sean Jones. Guests will be treated to original music and classic covers of iconic Canadian artists – like The Band, Sarah McLachlan and The Guess Who – that Jones drew inspiration from for his album. If guests really enjoy the music, the album is available for download and the story behind The Boarding Sessions is available to watch onboard WestJet’s Dreamliners.
“I’m so proud of what we’ve accomplished with Boarding Sessions and grateful to WestJet for bringing this music to life,” said Sean Jones. “Working on this project has been one of the highlights of my career and I’m excited to have built a playlist of my music that will be heard by people not just in Canada, but across WestJet’s global network.”
Business cabin guests departing on European-bound transatlantic flights will also enjoy a new range of amenities. The tan-coloured amenity kits, designed by Montreal’s Matt & Nat, while guests departing to Canada receive navy blue-coloured kits. These kits feature organic skincare products from Toronto’s Province Apothecary which use ingredients sourced from provinces across Canada.
Guests flying on select flights in WestJet’s Premium cabin will receive Rocky Mountain Soap Company kits that feature handmade products with simple, natural ingredients for healthy skin. Rocky Mountain Soap Company lavatory products including foaming hand wash, hand cream and refreshing wellness sprays, and are also available throughout most of the airline’s Premium and Economy cabins.
“Our guests are going to love our uniquely Canadian products and we are proud to showcase our like-minded partners who share our passion for thoughtful, quality products created in Canada,” said Louis Saint-Cyr, WestJet’s VP of guest experience. “WestJet continues our global transformation and these elevated products and services complement the award-winning onboard experience we are known for.”
