Jan. 10, 2008, Calgary- WestJet today announced the addition of daily non-stop service from Toronto to
Quebec City, coinciding with the celebration of the city's 400th
birthday in 2008. The addition of Quebec City marks WestJet's 27th
destination within Canada, connecting WestJet to over 25 million
Canadians. Services between Quebec City and Toronto will begin May 18,
2008 with introductory fares as low as $99 one-way.

The announcement of this new destination is part of WestJet's
enhanced summer schedule which also includes new seasonal non-stop
service between Regina-Toronto, Saskatoon-Toronto and
Abbotsford-Toronto as well as between Ottawa-Edmonton and
Ottawa-Halifax.

Bob Cummings, WestJet's Executive Vice-President Guest Experience
and Marketing said, "It is an honour to welcome Quebec City to the
WestJet family during such a momentous celebration of their heritage.
We believe our friendly approach to guest service is consistent with
the warm hospitality found in Quebec and that Quebecers will enjoy our
great guest experience in French and English.

"2007 has been a tremendous year of growth at WestJet, and we would
like to thank Canadians for their continued support. Our market
research shows that over 90 per cent of guests who try WestJet become
repeat guests and recommend us to their friends and associates. This is
due in large part to our exceptional guest experience delivered by our
great WestJetters. We are confident that Canadians will fill the
additional seats we are adding to our network.

"As part of our summer schedule announcement, we are pleased to
introduce new seasonal non-stop service to Toronto from Regina and
Saskatoon. The people of Saskatchewan have always welcomed us with open
arms and we are appreciative of their loyalty. These new non-stop
routes will provide them with more convenient connections to Eastern
Canada and to the over 60 WestJet flights that leave from Toronto each
day. In true WestJet style, there are some terrific introductory fares
that demonstrate WestJet's continued commitment to be the low-fare,
high-value leader in Canada.

"Our continued ability to add capacity, new cities and new routes
to our network is possible thanks to our dedicated and talented people.
I would like to thank all WestJetters for their caring attitude and
commitment to our company, setting the foundation for significant
growth in 2008."
