WESTJET PASSENGERS GET FEWERS CARRY-ONS
WestJet has decreased its carry-on baggage allowance from two carry-ons to one carryon. Passengers will still be permitted one personal item. The dimensions of the carry-on must not exceed 21 in. by 9 in. by 15 in.
WestJet’s executive vice president of sales and marketing, Bob Cummings, cited ontime performance and consistency as the reasoning:“Fewer carry-on items will mean more room for everyone’s baggage, and faster and more efficient boarding. This, in turn, helps us stay on time. It will also create a more consistent experience for guests traveling between WestJet and WestJet Encore beginning later this spring, as well as for guests connecting to and from flights offered by our codeshare and interline partners, most of whom have already adopted this standard.”
