The aircraft is expected to be integrated into the WestJet Group’s fleet and operations in 2024

WestJet is acquiring another Boeing 737 MAX 8 aircraft it its growing fleet.

The aircraft, acquired from aviation leasing company AerDragon, is expected to be integrated into the WestJet Group’s fleet and operations in 2024.

In partnership with AerDragon, we are adding to our Boeing 737 MAX family and building momentum towards supporting our capacity growth plans for 2024,” said Mike Scott, WestJet Group, Executive Vice-President and Chief Financial Officer. “Every aircraft added to our fleet means critical air access for Canadians and today’s announcement further reaffirms our mission to provide affordable air travel.

While the new aircraft will provide additional capacity across the airline’s network, it will not immediately reflect the WestJet Group’s interior cabin experience. Updating and refreshing the interior cabins will be prioritized as part of the airlines’ fleet reconfiguration plans. 

The news of the new aircraft comes just days after the WestJet Group announced the acquisition of three Boeing 737 MAX 8 aircraft from BOC Aviation Limited, all of which will also be integrated into the fleet this year.
