West Jet Suspending Service

WestJet Airlines Ltd. will suspend all international and U.S. flights for 30 days and cut its domestic schedule in half in light of the Government of Canada’s request that all Canadians abroad come home due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

The Calgary-based airline’s executives are also taking a pay cut as they plan for “major reductions” in the workforce as it parks its planes.

WestJet will operate scheduled international and U.S. flights until Sunday, March 22 at 11:59 p.m., chief executive Ed Sims said in a statement late Monday. After that, its planes will only cross the border to operate rescue and repatriation flights in partnership with Ottawa in an effort to bring Canadians home.
