It was a very exciting day at WestJet Campus Headquarters on May 8 as the new Boeing 787 Dreamliner aircraft was unveiled for the first time, leading to is arrival expected in early 2019. The Spirit of Canada Boeing 787 brings the unique quality, service and spirit of WestJet to the world.
The Dreamliner represents the next level of the WestJet guest experience, featuring three classes available including business class, premium economy and economy seating.
Business class travellers will receive the highest level of comfort and quality, with on demand dining, unprecedented levels of service, relaxation and privacy with lay-flat mattresses, bedding and turn-down service.
Premium Economy seating offers comfort enhancements including extra leg and elbow room and premium menu options including a self-service social area where guests can enjoy snacks and beverages at their leisure with space to move and relax.
In Economy seats, guests will enjoy in-flight entertainment, oversized self-dimming windows, and in-seat device charging and connectivity.
The Spirit of Canada Dreamliner is distinctly Canadian, uniquely WestJet. Drawing from Canadian themes the cabin interior welcomes guests with a rich colour palette. The soothing alpine lake blue in Economy, aurora-inspired shades and tones in Premium Economy and luxuriously rich earth tones in Business Class, inspired by the splendour of Canadian summers.
“The introduction of Boeing’s 787-9 Dreamliner, a state-of-the-art aircraft, is the dawn of a new era for WestJet and the next step in our transformation to a global network airline,” Ed Sims, WestJet President and CEO. “The updated livery is modern and dynamic while the interior is world-class, distinctly Canadian and uniquely WestJet. Both reflect WestJet’s transformation from a regional airline in 1996 to a new era of connecting Canada with the world and bringing the world to Canada.”
