What’s It Like Flying WestJet During COVID-19?

What’s It Like Flying WestJet During COVID-19?The aviation industry has changed drastically over the past several months, and Canada’s airlines aren’t immune to the effects of COVID-19.

As Canada’s second largest airline, WestJet has had to make some serious adjustments in their service and their domestic schedules.
