Across the airline's network, WestJetters have been getting into the holiday 
spirit by volunteering their time with its WestJet Cares for Kids partner 
charities. At this busy time of year, WestJetters who work in the airline's 
Calgary campus and in offices across the country also offer their time to help 
in airports, helping guests use kiosks and agents drop off and sort baggage.

WestJet employees turned the D-wing of Calgary International Airport into 
Santa's workshop, spreading Christmas cheer just before a sold-out red-eye 
flight to Toronto earlier this month.
