Founded in December of 2018, WestJet Virtual is a professionally oriented Virtual Airline based off the Canadian carrier WestJet. We offer a diverse and professional aroma within our Virtual Airline, offering real routes, a funded crew center with codeshare additions and and active support for any issues, and a modern up-to-date website. Everyday we aim to be different, and separate ourselves from the rest of the wolf pack. We also want to offer a healthy, welcoming environment that all pilots feel part of, and not distant to. Our staff have put in days of work, morning to night, revamping this Virtual Airline, meeting the pilot’s needs, not ours. Along with that, our Virtual Airline is constantly changing to keep pace with the modern pilot, but remaining diversity.

In alignment with the real WestJet, we offer over 150 destinations (including codeshares), flown with all seven aircraft (and 20+ codeshare fleet) in our mainline fleet. We have a new fully interactive crew center, allowing pilots to track flights, book flights, file PIREPS, research all routes and destinations, and more! We would love for you to come see what it is all about!

Our team consists of some of the hardest, most devoted individuals within our community. They work day and night to keep our Virtual Airline running smoothly, and efficiently. They are crucial to all work within, and out of the Virtual Airline.
