Boeing 737 Max-8 update

CALGARY, Alberta. March 27, 2019.

Currently our flight schedules reflect the removal of our 13 Boeing 737 MAX-8 aircraft and at this time, guests scheduled to travel up to and including May 3 have been reaccommodated.

We continue to monitor this dynamic situation and will balance further extension of a revised schedule as more information becomes available. Due to the unknown end date of the grounding, if your clients’ itinerary is affected, you, as a Travel Agent will receive an email from WestJet.

We are closely in contact with Boeing, Transport Canada, and other regulators to understand how and when to safely reintroduce the MAX-8 aircraft into service. It would be premature for WestJet to speculate on potential timelines regarding Boeing’s proposed software updates to the MAX. Should we be directed by our regulators to implement any such changes or associated training, we will absolutely take the proper steps to do so. WestJet remains unrelenting in putting safety at the forefront and will thoroughly evaluate processes, procedures and any further required training before these aircraft once again take to the skies.

WestJet has 168 aircraft, or more than 93 per cent of our overall fleet, that remain in service. You can book your clients with confidence knowing that WestJet continues to fly throughout the network with the safety of guests and employees as the priority.

Air Canada Updates Schedule Following the Grounding of the Boeing 737 MAX Aircraft
Air Canada said today that it has adjusted its schedule through to April 30 to cover 98 per cent of its planned flying following Transport Canada’s closure of Canadian airspace to Boeing 737 MAX aircraft operations.  In compliance with the safety notice, Air Canada has grounded its 24 737 MAX aircraft and Boeing has advised that deliveries of its 737 MAX are currently suspended.  Air Canada was expecting six new aircraft in March and April. Air Canada is now updating its May schedule to further optimize its fleet and re-accommodate customers. Because the timeline for the return to service of the 737 MAX is unknown, for planning purposes and to provide customers certainty for booking and travel, Air Canada intends to remove 737 MAX flying from its schedule until at least July 1, 2019. “The Boeing 737 MAX accounted for six per cent of Air Canada’s total flying, but there is a domino effect from removing the 737s from our fleet that impacts the schedule and ultimately will impact some customers. We have been working very hard to minimize that impact,” said Lucie Guillemette, Executive Vice President and Chief Commercial Officer at Air Canada. “To bring certainty to our schedule for our customers when booking and travelling, we are revising our schedule until July and we have taken several steps to continue delivering substantially all of our planned capacity through our global network. “Customers who have travel plans between now and July can be reassured that we will keep them informed every step of the way as we revise our schedule. We have a deep global network and many partner airlines to provide solutions so serving our customers and minimizing any disruption is our first priority.  We remain committed to delivering the same safe, reliable transportation customers expect from Air Canada. Customers can continue to book and travel on Air Canada with full confidence,” said Ms. Guillemette.
Among the measures taken by Air Canada:
To mitigate the impact, Air Canada has been substituting different aircraft on 737 MAX routes. This includes flying routes with similar-sized or larger aircraft. To help provide this replacement flying, the carrier has extended leases for aircraft which were scheduled to exit the fleet. Air Canada is also accelerating the in-take of recently acquired Airbus A321 aircraft from WOW Airlines into its fleet and has hired other carriers to provide immediate extra capacity. For example, Air Transat has been chartered on a temporary basis to operate one daily frequency between Vancouver and Montreal beginning March 20 until March 31. In addition, Air Canada has leased an aircraft from Air Transat from April 1 to April 30 in order to operate the Montreal to Cancun route.
Schedule Changes:
The airline has implemented a number of route changes to date, either changing operating times or substituting larger aircraft with fewer frequencies on routes operated more frequently by smaller aircraft. In some cases, it has deployed Air Canada Rouge aircraft to serve mainline routes. The airline is also currently finalizing a new routing for the return leg of its Toronto-Delhi service, which continues to be impacted by the closure of Pakistani airspace. This flight will remain non-stop between Toronto and Delhi but now stop in Vancouver rather than Copenhagen on the return leg.
Route Suspensions:
In a small number of cases, Air Canada has temporarily suspended until further notice service on certain 737 MAX routes where alternative aircraft are not presently available. This includes flights from Halifax and St. John’s to London Heathrow, for which it is re-accommodating customers over its Toronto and Montreal hubs. Air Canada remains committed to these routes and will resume service as soon as possible. It also includes seasonal flights from Vancouver to Kona, Lihue and Calgary-Palm Springs, with customers re-accommodated on other routings.
Customer Information:
As changes are finalized in the flight schedule, customers whose flight times or flight numbers have changed can expect to receive an email detailing their updated itinerary.  This information is also available in My Bookings on the Air Canada app or Air Canada website. Customers are advised, whether they have booked directly through Air Canada or not, to ensure their contact information is on their booking to facilitate communication of any flight changes. Air Canada has put in place a flexible rebooking policy with full fee waiver and a refund option for affected customers. Customers originally scheduled to travel on a 737 MAX can call Air Canada at 1-833-354-5963 for information within 72 hours of their planned flight. Customers who have booked flights through a Travel Agent will be redirected to you for assistance.Customers are further advised to check the status of their flight using the Flight Status function on the Air Canada app or on aircanada.com prior to going to the airport. Additional information, including specific changes to the April 737 MAX operation is provided in the special page Update on flights operated by the Boeing 737 MAX on aircanada.com which will be updated as warranted.

The following are testimonials from our Tour Clients.

"Lord Nelson Hotel was great, and perfectly located.  We really enjoyed seeing Maud Lewis' tiny house at the Art Gallery. The next day, having lunch at The Red Shoe Pub in Mabou, the "Maudie" actor Ethan Hawke came in to eat with his family!  We were able to speak with him for a bit.
Favourite restaurants:  Bicycle Thief and Press Gang (we had "The Drill") in Halifax; Red Shoe Pub (we ate there twice); Windows on the Water in Montague; Georgetown Historic Inn; Piatto (great pizza) and The Merchantman Pub in Charlottetown; Main Street Restaurant and Bakery in Ingonish.
Cabot golf courses were amazing, I got my first-ever birdie on Cabot Links.  The PEI courses were lovely, too.
Donelda's Puffin Boat Tour was great.
Glenora Inn was lovely, we enjoyed the distillery tour. My only complaint would be that our room was in the brand-new log cabin which is quite a distance from the Inn, so we had to get in the car all the time.
There was some confusion at the Oak Island Resort, the dinner package we had (4 course meal with bottle of wine) puzzled the dining room manager, she claimed they didn't offer that, but I had the invoice which mentioned it so she honoured it. The food there was somewhat disappointing.  
We really enjoyed Charlottetown, did the double decker city tour as well as the Queens Square Walking Tour. In the evening, we went to Atlantic Blue, Tara MacLean's concert at the Guild Theatre, very good.
Lunenburg was beautiful. Visited the Fisheries Museum of the Atlantic and did a horse-drawn buggy tour.
Mahone Bay was super-crowded, so we didn't stay long.
Peggy's Cove is a must-see but as you warned, so crowded. We did that on our last day, driving the coastal route to the airport. We escaped Peggy's Cove and ate lunch further north. We enjoyed the drive.
It was a very relaxing vacation, great food. I loved the ceilidhs in the restaurants, particularly The Red Shoe Pub.  
The Hertz rental car was a Chrysler Pacifica, very roomy and a pleasure to drive."
Many thanks for putting together a fine vacation, Lisa and Don.

"Hello and thank you for checking back with us! We loved Nova Scotia! We were very pleased with your suggestion to do Halifax and Cape Breton. We loved the Marriott in Halifax. The room we were assigned at first overlooked the garage so we asked for one with a view, and we were able to get one for an additional $20 per night. It was much, much better. The breakfasts were great, and we ate dinner there once which was fine. Access to the parking garage from the hotel was excellent. We went to Peggy's Cove, Lunenberg, and the Fisherman's Village near Dartmouth. The Distillery was satisfactory but not particularly to our liking because of its remoteness, but we understand that hotel options in the Cape are limited. Being so far on the western side of the Cape, it was a long trek to get anywhere. We did the Cabot Trail which was beautiful and we found a nice restaurant on the water for lunch. We also went to the Highland Village which we loved. We would have liked to see more but anything else was too far to drive to. Our room at the lodge was a little too rustic for us (no closet, shower very small and was difficult to start, no phone to the desk) and we had to drive to the main building to get sodas, ice, water or anything else we needed. On the positive side, the TV and the heat/AC and internet were very good. Breakfast was very good, dinner in the pub not great, and we didn't try the dining room. Thank you for all your assistance, and we used your pamphlet to guide us which was very helpful. We hope to get back someday and do the south and north shores, and PEI. Everyone in your office was very helpful and we appreciate that. In fact, all Canadians we met were very friendly and courteous. We felt like we were in the USA." Sincerely,Ken and Pam
