west jet offers McCafe!

November 24, 2016 By Airline Ticket Centre

We are excited to announce that we have partnered with McDonald’s® Canada to offer McCafé Premium Roast coffee on board WestJet aircraft.

The first flight, taking place today (November 21, 2016) from Toronto to Calgary, represents a global-first for McDonald’s and an unprecedented next step in the McCafé coffee journey, which in recent years has continued its emphasis on providing Canadians with A New Way to Café.

By December 1, we wiloffer McCafé Premium Roast coffee across our fleet of Boeing 737NG and 767NG aircraft with our regional airline, WestJet Encore, to follow.

WestJet and McDonalds Canada’s high standards for quality and guest satisfaction were reflected in developing new brewing procedures on-board. The result is a uniquely rich, bold taste of McCafé Premium Roast Coffee that will surprise and delight guests on our flights
