Westjet continue to build their fleet after finalising an agreement with S.A.L.E. to lease 4 more 737s of which 3 are 73Gs and the other a 738. By the end of 2008 their fleet should consist of 76 737s

CALGARY, ALBERTA--(CCNMatthews - July 20, 2006) - WestJet (TSX:WJA) today announced that it has finalized a term sheet with Singapore Aircraft Leasing Enterprise (SALE) for four Boeing Next-Generation 737 aircraft to be delivered in late 2007 and early 2008.

Details of the agreement include one 700-series aircraft scheduled for delivery in November, 2007, in addition to one 800-series aircraft and two 700-series aircraft scheduled for delivery in the first and second quarter of 2008 respectively. The agreement also provides WestJet with the ability to secure three 700-series and one 800-series aircraft for delivery in 2009. The 700 series may be converted to 800-series at WestJet's option. Finalization of the transaction is subject to a number of conditions.

Still doing well for themselves and it's good to see them still expanding their fleet.

Where are they planning on deploying these aircraft? They're obviously looking at speeding up expansion and growth if they are choosing to lease. Do they have any more 737's left to be delivered from Boeing? What is the delivery schedule?

We just found out at work that they will be starting service to KOA within the next couple of months. AQ just took the contract. Word is they will start with 2X weekly service to YVR.
