FLIGHT CODES!

I now have the discount codes for WestJet and their discounted flights to Vancouver.

To quote WestJet directly:

Re: Gatecon


Dear Kathryn,

Thank you for choosing WestJet for your travel needs. We are happy to confirm your discount codes for the upcoming Gatecon- The Homecoming being held from September 8 – 12, 2016. WestJet is pleased to offer you a 10% discount on applicable fares by utilizing promo code YVR02 and coupon code BGQ4NWS with our simple online booking process. The discount is valid across WestJet’s extensive network for flights in to and out of Vancouver, British Columbia.

 

· The 10% discount applies to all of our fare products, Econo, Flex and Plus on our entire flight network.

· The percentage-based discount is applied to the base fare only. Taxes, fees and charges are extra.

· The discount applies to the following travel period: begins September 1, 2016 and ends September 19, 2016.

· The following blackout dates apply to your meeting/convention: September 1 – 2, 5 – 6, 2016. Flights during these dates will be offered at our best available fare

· The discount only applies to flights marketed and operated wholly by WestJet, and is not applicable when travelling with our code-share, interline or other airline partners.

· This promo code is not valid in conjunction with any other discount. WestJet’s fare rules and conditions apply.

· The promo code is intended for use by meeting and conference attendees and organizers and is not meant for distribution to any outside third parties or unauthorized channels.

This is a list of the airports they fly in and out of: http://www.westjet.com/vacations/en/super-regions/super-region.shtml

Please note: For UK bookings you will need to email WestJet direct to get the discounted fare as it doesn't work via their website. You will also need to phone through payment but its all very easy and straightforward!

The email to use is Conventions@westjet.com and the contact name is Melanie Campeau. Please contact Melanie if you have any queries, questions or problems as I will be unable to help with that sort of thing. Toll free telephone no,  1 888-493-7853 (works from the UK as well). If your flight/s fall outside of the offered dates it would still be worth emailing Melanie and asking for the discount as she might say yes!

Go to www.westjet.com to make your booking (or use the email addy/toll free number if you are in the UK)

I've plugged in the codes for Westjet flying out of my airport to Vancouver, and noticed that certain flights aren't discounted when teamed with American Airlines or Westjet morning flights via Calgary to Vancouver. :(

It mentions something in their info above about only applying to flights wholly operated by Westjet

Important info for people travelling into Canada:

Most travelers need a valid entry document such as an Electronic Travel Authorization (eTA) or a visa to visit Canada. This will depend on your citizenship or your situation.

Ok, it looks like US citizens are exempt from the visa and medical documentation requirement.

I have a regular passport.

And to clarify my earlier post, the Westjet flight, originating from my airport and stops in Calgary then goes on to Vancouver, is not discounted. I don't know why Westjet doesn't discount "before noon" flights for this group code.

unfortunately westjet doesnt service the airport closest to me  so I will have to pay a bit more and most airlines I have called don't have schedules listed for 2018 travel yet---will probably get decent discount as a senior with aarp or aaa

I've been contemplating about flying to Seattle on Southwest (I should have enough points for a RT by then) and then take the train from Seattle to Vancouver.  Any suggestions?

I am almost in possession of the discount codes for Westjet so if you haven’t booked your flight yet it might be worth seeing if they fly out of your local airport as you will be able to get 10% off
