20080331-401wja_512April 1, 2008 (That's April 1, 2008) Calgary, Alta. – WestJet today announced that on April 1, 2008, sleeper cabins will be
introduced onboard its existing fleet of 73 Boeing 737 Next-Generation
aircraft. These sleeper cabins can be booked on all of WestJet's
existing flights for a nominal incremental fee of $12.

"WestJet now offers scheduled service to 47 destinations,
continuing on our strategy to be Canada's favourite airline," commented
Bob Cummings, Executive Vice-President Guest Experience and Marketing.
"Our leather seats and live satellite television are a great part of
WestJet's guest experience however, by offering our existing overhead
bins as sleeper cabins, guests will now have the opportunity to lie
down for a period of time and arrive at their destination refreshed,
rested and ready to go.

"The overhead compartment has traditionally been a place where
guests have placed their carry-on baggage. Given that the overhead bins
on our fleet are among the most spacious of any airline, we made the
decision to offer sleeper cabins in that space."

To verify sleeper cabin availability on a WestJet flight, guests
are encouraged to call WestJet at 1-866-935-2702 (English) or
1-866-935-2703 (French).
