On Tuesday (July 9, 2024), WestJet announced the launch of Campus’Air, a new service designed to provide students and university staff with cost-effective shipping solutions for their personal effects.  Campus’Air broadens WestJet Cargo’s portfolio of services catering to the unique needs of the academic community.  Under the new program, students and faculty members of select Canadian universities will receive a 50 percent discount on published freight rates for domestic shipments of personal effects.    


In Tuesday’s announcement, WestJet Cargo’s Executive Vice President, Kirsten De Bruijn, said,


“At WestJet Cargo, we recognize the unique challenges faced by students and university staff in transporting their personal belongings.  Campus'Air is our way of supporting the academic community, providing them with an affordable, reliable shipping solution that underscores our commitment to fostering education and community development across Canada.”


In order to qualify for the discount, individuals must be current students or employees of participating universities, as shown here.  Shipping quotes can be obtained by contacting the WestJet Cargo contact center, and once processed, most shipments will arrive at their destinations in within 24 hours.  Currently, the Campus’Air initiative applies to domestic shipments only.


With 28 years of service, WestJet has cut airfares for Canadians in half and increased the flying population around Canada by over 50 percent.  The airline launched in 1996 with three aircraft, 250 employees and five destinations, and has now grown to more than 180 aircraft and 14,000 employees, offering service to over 100 destinations in 26 countries.
