- Based in Calgary, Alberta, WestJet is Canada’s second largest airline, and for the third year in a row, the country’s top airline in the TripAdvisor ranking. The integration with Dingus will especially benefit our clients with hotels in the Caribbean, where the Canadian market is one of the most important
Dingus connectivities continue to add operators in Canada, where we have just increased the catalogue of integrations with WestJet. Their incorporation is especially important for hotels in the Caribbean area, where the airline maintains one of the favorite destinations of Canadian tourists. In addition, the Calgary-based company operates in Canada itself, the United States, Europe, Mexico and Central America.
The airline started flying with 3 planes to 5 destinations in 1996. Now its fleet exceeds 150 aircraft, operates to more than 100 destinations and carries more than 22 million passengers per year, thanks to more than 750 daily flights.
What has not changed, say those responsible, are the company’s founding values, led by a commitment to safety. From the Canadian company, they assure that their mission is “to enrich everyone’s lives with WestJet, so that our customers love the places they visit” whether for pleasure or business. Contributing to this are awards such as those received in 2019: Best Airline in Canada and winner of the Best Mid-sized Airline in North America by travelers (TripAdvisor), and the rating of their WestJet RBC World Elite Mastercard as the number 1 credit card in the airline industry by Rewards Canada.ca).
The importance of the Canadian traveller for our Caribbean customers
More than twelve million Americans and Canadians travel to Caribbean each year to enjoy their holidays. Forecasts suggest that this could reach 30 million in a few years. Among the main reasons for this are the 5.5 days that these tourists spend on average on their holidays and the barely five hours that they usually travel, especially during the winter, in the north of the continent. For them, the Caribbean is an ideal destination.
Aware of these peculiarities, operators in Canada (along with those in the United States) are immersed in betting on the chains that operate with them in destinations such as Mexico and the Dominican Republic. And for that reason, Dingus is constantly strengthening its relations and positioning among the main issuers to the Caribbean, working the portfolio of hotels in the area from our offices in Mexico.
