Website | About


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 along our Group Airlines, a funded crew center with codeshare additions and and active support for any issues, a modern up-to-date website, and multiple programs to suit all pilots. Everyday we aim to be different, and make ourselves stand out with new ideas and characteristics. 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 fully interactive crew center with active staff-support, 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!

Why are we called WestJet Virtual Group?

Here, we operate 5 airlines under the eyes of our Virtual Airline, with WestJet being the primary owner, we also run WestJet Link, WestJet Encore, Swoop, Pacific Coastal, and soon to be acquiring Sunwing! This means you can fly any of these airlines when flying with us!


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. Below are our great staff:

I’m ECoops123, a long term Infinite Flight user and Canada lover. I love to help others and expand myself to all areas of Infinite Flight that I can. I’m regularly around and always looking for fun. I hope to be a commercial pilot when I’m older, with a great interest in WestJet. I have been part of this VA since January 2019, before taking position as CEO in February 2020. Since then I have been running this VA, and hope to continue leading WestJet Virtual for the forseeable future.
ECoops123, CEO of WestJet Virtual Group

Hello everyone! I’m MJP_27 and I’m the COO of WestJet Virtual. WestJet Virtual is one of the best VA’s I’ve ever been in from the kind people to the awesome routes in the VA. I’m impacting the VA by helping the new pilots joining our VA to discover Canada and the world. I also provide the Routes of the Week which are featured routes that we post every week in the Discord. I also host events that are very fun to fly with everyone in the VA

“In the short time I have been with WSVG it has been amazing and I have visited some beautiful airports. I’m very excited to become your events manager and host many great times to come.”
NPreuss, Silver Rank

“This VA has such nice staff, and is so welcoming! It was the very first VA I joined and I would never leave! WestJet Virtual Group has such fun routes, along with some very challenging ones too! It has also allowed me to meet new people and attend very fun events! If you are looking for a Virtual Airline that’s nice, welcoming, fun, and has many great people you should definitely consider joining WSVG.”

Fleet

Our fleet coordinates with the current WestJet fleet within the app, allowing to get the closest to realism as possible, just a tap away. The WestJet Virtual fleet has a huge range of flights, anywhere from a TBM-930 with service to our local destinations, all the way to the beautiful Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner, connections us to Europe and Beyond!

TBM 930

The TBM-930 operates our WestJet Link and Pacific Costal SAAB 340 routes currently since there’s no SAAB aircraft in Infinite Flight currently. We mainly use this aircraft for short 30 minutes to an hour hops, for our newer member to learn how to fly in the local area and explore the beauty of Canada.

You can vote for the WestJet Pacific Costal SAAB 340 livery to come to IF here

Bombardier Q400

The WestJet Bombardier Q400 is the primary aircraft for short hauls in Canada and down to the USA, usually starting from the hubs of WestJet to cities. It’s operated by WestJet Encore. This aircraft is our VA favourite, we even have a manual to help you understand his to fly the aircrwft realistically!

Boeing 737-700

The Boeing 737-700 is part of the main fleet of WestJet flying to all of our destinations across America and Europe. Dud you know that WestJet is one of the very few Transatlantic operators that use the 737?

Boeing 737-800

The Boeing B737-800 is a part of the main fleet flying to many different destinations in the americas from Hawaii to Central America, to the USA and regional Canada! This aircraft has dozens of routes to fly! We operate the 737-800 with 2 airlines, WestJet and SWOOP!

Boeing 767-300

The Boeing 767-300 is 1 of our 2 aircraft apart of the wide body fleet. We fly this aircraft to some parts of the Caribbean, and Europe. These over time are being replaced by our cool Dreamliners!

Currently we don’t have the WestJet B767-300 livery in game. You can vote for the livery to be added here

Boeing 787-9

The Boeing 787-9 is our flagship aircraft; painted in our new livery, we fly this with pride to many destinations across Europe, Hawaii and between Canadian cities. Join us and fly our favourite aircraft in our fleet!
