Why WestJet:

Every WestJet journey has the potential to enrich lives; a career with us is no exception.

WestJet arrived on the Canadian airline scene in 1996 and changed the industry for the better. We made air travel more affordable for Canadians and now we’re going global.

Join us and love where you’re going.

It’s time for your career to really take off.

WestJet is embarking upon a transformative era, transitioning from a successful low-cost carrier (LCC) founded in 1996, to a global, full-service network carrier with the delivery of Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner aircraft in January 2019. With approximately 14,000 ambitious WestJetters across Encore, WestJet mainline, and WestJet Vacations, the business continues to rapidly increase in complexity and scale. The velocity of change across all major functions has generated an acute focus on innovation, technology, and scaling our next adventure with a nimble, growth mindset. This is an exciting time for our authentically Canadian airline, and we are looking for committed, caring, future WestJetters to join us on this journey.

Our pilots are leaders who consistently raise the bar professionally and personally. Behind the controls, our pilots focus on safe, comfortable, on-time performance that is among the best in the industry. WestJet Encore offers a fresh opportunity to build your career with an organization powered by progressive leadership, strategies and practices. If you want to rise above the status quo by joining a company with a strong growth plan, where each day invites you to aim higher, WestJet Encore is the place for you.
