WestJet is Canada's most preferred airline ̶ again

CALGARY, May 10, 2013 /CNW/ - WestJet today announced it has once again been 
named Canada's most-preferred airline in a national study of Canadian flyers 
conducted in April of this year by Leger Marketing. The study also rated 
WestJet as the most trusted airline and the airline that offers the best 
customer service. 
In a separate study also conducted by Leger Marketing, WestJet is also ranked 
as the most reputable transportation company in Canada. Leger's Canadian 
Corporate Reputation Study ranked the airline tops among six airlines, rail 
and bus companies. 
Last week, WestJet was named Canada's most attractive employer for the second 
year in a row. The award is given by Randstad Canada, a staffing, recruitment 
and HR company. Also last week, WestJet ranked second in overall reputation in 
the Reputation Institute/Canadian Business 2013 Most Reputable Companies in 
Canada survey, second only to Tim Horton's and ahead of companies like Kraft 
Food, IBM and even Apple. WestJet was also the highest-ranked Canadian company 
in the survey for corporate governance and workplace. 
"To be nationally recognized not once but four times in about a week is truly 
humbling," said Gregg Saretsky, WestJet President and CEO. "These accolades 
are a testament to our caring culture, which is driven by our more than 9,000 
engaged and spirited WestJetters. As we grow and evolve our network and 
products to meet the changing needs of our guests, we remain focused on caring 
service and delivering a great guest experience. These are the things that 
make us different, and the proud Canadian company we are today."
