"We continued to increase traffic and connectivity in the second quarter," Ed Sims, WestJet President and CEO. "In June, we successfully launched our ultra-low-cost carrier Swoop, enhanced regional service with the launch of WestJet Link and celebrated WestJet Encore's fifth birthday. We are proud to be Canada's most reliable airline, as WestJet placed 2nd for major North American airlines and WestJet Encore placed 2nd for all North American regional airlines for on-time performance in the month, as reported by Flight Stats. My sincere thanks go out to each individual WestJetter for their on-going commitment to delivering our award-winning service."
