WestJet Airlines plans to return the Boeing 737 MAX 8 to service later this month, nearly two years after the aircraft was grounded around the world after two fatal crashes. The Calgary-based airline, which has 13 of the planes in its fleet, said it is working with Transport Canada to ensure they will be ready to return to service on Jan. 21. Ed Sims, CEO, said the carrier will be forthcoming with guests on where the aircraft are flying and will be flexible with its change and cancel policy to ensure travelers “can make their travel plans confidently.” He said the airline is dedicated to restoring guest confidence in the MAX 8 through its safe operation, “while providing the transparency and the flexibility that some of its passengers may still require.” Transport Canada recently completed its independent review of the aircraft and validated the design changes made to it.
