WestJet Virtual Group | A New Dawn | Calgary Stampede is On!

We are

This is the dawn of the newest Canadian VA.

Certified April 20th, 2019

Just two friends hanging around, when it struck us, ”Open a VA!” And from there it just breezed past, and, well, here we are!

-WestJet737767, Co-Founder, COO of WestJet Virtual Group

On the whim of a joke, a small laugh between two mates turned into something they never thought, or knew they could ever achieve. On September 29, 2018, everything changed for @ILOVE7879 and @WestJet737767. After many long waits and dedicated work, they accomplished something not many others could, opening a virtual airline.

Want to know who’s running the show?

(Under Maintenance)

WestJet Virtual Group is very proud to have over 100 destinations in 25 countries! As we transition into our new PIREP system, all of our routes can be found on the WestJet Schedule Website, available here!
As our network expands, so does us, and you!

We have 6 hubs and focus cities:

  • CYYC- Calgary International (Hub, HQ)
  • CYYZ- Toronto Lester B Pearson International (Hub)
  • CYVR- Vancouver International (Hub)
  • CYEG- Edmonton International (FC)
  • CYWG- Winnipeg James Armstrong Richardson International (FC)
  • CYHZ- Halifax Stanfield International (FC)

Europe is Here!

As our new Boeing 787 Dreamliners arrive, we are unlocking keys from Calgary, to new horizons! With new scheduled direct service from Calgary to London, Dublin, Glasgow, and Paris, and many more to come, you can be sure that you can be everywhere, and anywhere with the touch of a button.

Stampede is On!

With Stampede here, you can earn 3X flight hours! That’s right! 3X flight hours on any flights from the US and Mexico!
Happy Stampeding!

If big, fancy, long routes aren’t for you, then you can choose the Encore Division! Our fleet of Canadian built Bombardier Q-400 aircraft, offers the ability to fly to, and serve smaller communities that larger jet aircraft cannot reach. All the way from Vancouver Island, through the Okanagan Valley and the prairies, to the farming communities on the east coast, or the frigid cold of the North, it is your ability to work with these communities and make sure they can connect to the major hubs that make up Canada!

To ensure a fair balance between our Mainline Pilots flying longer routes, and our Encore Pilots flying shorter routes, our ranking system is divided into 2 separate requirement charts.

WestJet Mainline:

  • First Officer (Achieved after graduation, Boeing 737-700 access)
  • Jr. Captain (50 Hours, Boeing 737-800 access)
  • Captain (100 Hours, Boeing 767-300ERW, ETOPS 737 routes access)
  • Sr. Captain (150 Hours, Boeing 787-9 access)
  • Lieutenant Captain (300 Hours, Trainer staff position access)

Nice! But have you guys heard about Westjet being bought by Onex?


Yes, we have. In this deal though, WestJet will remain branded as WestJet, and so we don’t have to worry for a while :)


Congratulations yal! Very nice thread.


Congradulations @WestJet737767! I’m so proud of the effort put into this. Canada is slowly starting to take over the aviation game. I can’t wait to see how this goes!


One thing i would do though, is remove China from the front page, as it isn’t operated by WestJet nor Confirmed by WestJet as of today.

Don’t forget to give credit to @ILOVE7879! I wouldn’t have been able to do this without him!

As for the China thing it’s just meant to be an alliteration.
