WestJet and Transat Enter into Charter Partnership

MONTREAL, QUEBEC--Transat A.T. inc., announced today a two-year

agreement which will allow Transat and its two main tour

operators, World of Vacations and Air Transat Holidays, to

charter a number of WestJet's state-of-the-art Next-Generation

Boeing 737 aircraft and crews for specific routes from several

Canadian cities. For the duration of the agreement, Transat's two

main tour operators will fill the WestJet planes with passengers

from Canada heading for several Southern destinations. During the

first season, the contract is worth an estimated $29 million

Canadian dollars.

"We are pleased with this partnership agreement. The addition of

WestJet's narrow-bodied aircraft will complement Air Transat's

wide-bodied fleet. We will now be able to increase our service

offering in certain markets and broaden our offering in areas

which could not otherwise be served by our aircraft," stated Lina

De Cesare, Executive Vice-President, Tour Operators at Transat

A.T. inc.
