CALGARY , Feb. 15, 2019 /CNW/ - WestJet (WJA.TO) today announced that it will seek shareholder approval at its 2019 annual and special meeting of shareholders to amend its articles of incorporation and By-Law No. 2005-1 to increase the limits on foreign ownership and control of its voting shares to those permitted by amendments made to the Canada Transportation Act (CTA) in 2018. The Government of Canada's stated purpose in implementing the CTA amendments is to attract more foreign investment and encourage growth in the aviation sector by increasing, from 25% to 49%, the permitted level of foreign ownership of Canadian air carriers. At the same time, the CTA amendments introduced two new limitations on voting ownership and control, by capping the voting rights of single non-Canadians and of the aggregate of non-Canadian air carriers at 25%.
WestJet Airlines Ltd canceled more than 100 flights across Canada after a snowstorm battered the country's central and eastern provinces, a spokeswoman for the carrier said on Wednesday.

WestJet Airlines Ltd's new no-frills carrier Swoop said on Wednesday that most of its passengers are either new or infrequent flyers, helping the Canadian company's two airlines avoid competing for the same passenger. Swoop President Steven Greenway said in an interview that more than 50 percent of its travelers had either never traveled by plane, or would not normally fly with WestJet or its domestic rival Air Canada. "Given our model we are not cannibalizing, we are creating a new market," Greenway said by phone.
WestJet Airlines Ltd will scale back capacity growth this year to focus on more profitable routes, as it looks to cut costs and lure higher-paying customers to turn it around after a turbulent 2018, Chief Executive Ed Sims said on Tuesday. Shares of the second-largest Canadian carrier surged more than 3 percent in late morning trading in Toronto, after it beat analyst estimates for profit in the fourth quarter by containing costs and said it anticipates strong 2019 bookings. Calgary-based WestJet aims to broaden its share of higher-paying passengers by introducing fees for perks like priority boarding and added legroom, along with its new Dreamliner business class service.
