This week, WestJet provided an update on its integration of Sunwing Airlines into the overall group, which is expected to be completed in 12 months time.
The Canadian carrier has given a date of October 2024 for such integration to be completed by, which includes the transferring of all Boeing 737 aircraft into the same air operator’s certificate.
Without further ado, let’s get into it…
Completed by October 2024: WestJet-Sunwing Integration…
WestJet has been very busy in recent months with the likes of the Sunwing integration, as well as the integration of another carrier: Swoop.
The airline expects this particular transaction and integration to be completed by the end of this month, with the WestJet Group aiming to provide “the same commitment to delivering a reliable guest and employee experience”.
Expanding on this further was Group CEO Alexis von Hoensbroech:
“As we execute upon our network strategy to serve the Canadian leisure market from coast-to-coast, we look forward to consolidating Sunwing Airline’s 737 aircraft, with that of WestJet’s, enhancing our ability to meet the diverse travel and product needs of all Canadians”.
“Integration work will prioritize a seamless transition for Sunwing’s customers and employees as we work together to bring enhanced sun and leisure offerings to communities across the country and ensure jobs for those transferring to WestJet from Sunwing Airlines.”
Looking ahead, this consolidation will streamline the Group’s operations, and encourage further growth and connectivity going into the future. All eyes will be on them to see what comes next.
