WestJet Rewards introduces lounge benefit enhancements

Direct News Source

Late last year, we launched our new WestJet Rewards Platinum tier, along with enhanced benefits for our Gold and Silver members. We also shared that even more enhancements would be coming for our top-tier members in 2019 and we’re pleased to announce that expanded lounge benefits are now in effect.

What’s changed?

Previously, Silver members were awarded four lounge vouchers and Gold and Platinum members were awarded ten upon achieving the respective tier status. Now lounge benefits have been expanded to include guest vouchers for all three tiers, as well as unlimited access (including family privileges) for Gold and Platinum members.

Effective January 23, 2019

Tier Airport lounge access
(at select airports):
Platinum Unlimited for member and up to 5 immediate family members*
+2 guest vouchers
Gold Unlimited for member and up to 5 immediate family members*
+2 guest vouchers
Silver 4 lounge vouchers for member
+2 guest vouchers

Silver: Silver members are now awarded two one-time use guest lounge vouchers, in addition to the four lounge vouchers previously issued. The four vouchers awarded with Silver are for the member’s personal use and the two additional are designated for guests, however, the member may use them for their own access if they choose.

Gold and Platinum: Lounge access for Gold and Platinum has been converted from individual vouchers to unlimited access for the member and up to five immediate family members* when travelling with the member. In addition, Platinum and Gold members are awarded two one-time use guest lounge vouchers to use when travelling with other guests.

Check out the full list of available lounges. A valid boarding pass displaying a WestJet flight number for a departing flight must be presented at time of entry into the lounge. Printed vouchers are not required.

There’s a lot more to come. Throughout 2019, we’ll continue to expand on the benefits and experiences we offer our top-tier members, including a comprehensive upgrade program and reciprocal partner benefits. Learn more about WestJet Rewards tiers and benefits.
