Effective June 1, 2022, WestJet will offer guests more options to pre-pay baggage before travel to save.

Changes to baggage fees will only apply to bookings made from April 27, 2022, onward, for travel on or after June 1, 2022, according to an update posted to WestJet’s blog this week.

There are no changes to WestJet’s current baggage fee pricing when selecting pre-pay baggage options at the time of booking or in advance of check-in requirements, the airline says.

Guests are encouraged to pre-pay for their first and second bags to save, as baggage fees will increase by $10 within 24 hours of departure or when checking-in at the airport.

Guests will be able to select pre-pay options in the booking flow or can utilize Manage Trips to pre-pay baggage fees before the 24-hour check-in window.

There is no change to past or future reservations which already include first and second bag (Premium, Business, Rewards top tier etc., or WestJet RBC World Elite Mastercard first bag.
