Along with the new seat product and Dreamliner interior, Westjet has also unveiled a new livery design, featuring a revamped font and a more contemporary interpretation of its Maple Leaf logo.
Unlike the business class seats, however, the new livery is expected to debut in June on the airline’s B737 Max 8 aircraft.
“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,” said Ed Sims, Westjet’s 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 transition from a regional airline in 1996 to a new era of connecting Canada with the world and bringing the world to Canada.”
While Westjet currently does not operate flights to destinations in Asia-Pacific, a number of carriers in the region do codeshare with the Canadian airline, such as Qantas and Hong Kong Airlines.
Westjet has 10 B787-9s on order with an option for 10 additional aircraft, along with 50 B737 Max aircraft.
