WestJet Celebrates Top Sellers At 2020 Travel Partner Awards
More than 300 partners gathered at WestJet’s hangar in Toronto yesterday as the airline celebrated the trade at the 2020 Travel Partner Awards.
WestJet’s newest 787 Dreamliner was the dramatic backdrop for the 2020
Travel Partner Awards.
Within the dramatic hangar venue, attendees had the opportunity to take an onboard tour of WestJet’s newest 787-9 Dreamliner, tail 905. The shiny new plane has just arrived from Boeing, and will make its inaugural commercial flight on 29FEB.
“We would like to congratulate this year’s Travel Partner Awards winners and thank all our agency partners for their ongoing support. We’re proud to recognize their hard work and dedication as we work together in support of WestJet’s global growth,” said Chuck Crowder, Vice-President, Sales, Distribution and Contact Centres.
Director of Agency Sales Jane Clementino speaks to an award-winning audience.
Crowder said he spent eight years on the agency side early in his career and understands the importance of travel advisors to the airline’s success. “We appreciate everything you do for us every day,” he said.
Jane Clementino, Director of Agency Sales, told the audience that WestJet is investing in travel agents as it makes the transition from its roots as a low-cost, mostly domestic carrier to a full-service international airline.
The coveted prize.
“We are also investing in people to support the trade,” Clementino said. “My agency sales team has doubled in size in one year. We are upping the game.”
