WestJet Announces Fee for First Checked Bag

WestJet today (Sept. 15, 2014) announced it will charge a $25 fee for a first checked bag on Econo fares for travel within Canada and between Canada and the U.S.

The new fee will only apply to bookings made September 15, 2014 onward, for travel on or after October 29, 2014. Guests flying to any of WestJet’s international destinations including Mexico, the Caribbean, Central America and Europe may continue to check a first bag at no charge.

This change, which will apply to Econo fares only, is expected to affect approximately one in five WestJet guests. Guests who select a Flex fare will receive one free checked bag while guests choosing a Plus fare will enjoy two complimentary checked bags in addition to waived fees, seat selection, more legroom and many other amenities.
