This represents the third time WestJet has offered the matching programme to frequent Canadian flyers and the first time WestJet has offered status match to all airline and travel rewards top-tier programme members.

“In six years, we have built a loyalty programme that we believe offers the best value to the travelling public,” said Bob Cummings, Executive Vice-President, Commercial. “We recognise that it can take a long time to reach gold status when starting with a new programme and we believe so strongly in our offering we invite loyalty members from any airline or travel rewards programme to get gold status from a company that really cares.”

Qualifying members will enjoy gold flight benefits until 31st December 2017.
