Whether your loved ones are near or far, this Christmas is all about getting the people you love most under one roof and who better to do just that than a company that thrives on bringing happiness to new heights? This year, as part of their 10th annual holiday video, Calgary-based WestJet has done this and so much, simultaneously rendering us both blubbering and overjoyed ahead of the season.
Posing as a documentary film crew, WestJet asked people from coast to coast what they’re looking for most this Christmas – and no surprise, everyone said family.
“The pandemic impacted everyone’s ability to connect with families and friends for far too long and we’ve truly missed celebrating those moments with our guests,” said Richard Bartrem, WestJet Vice-President, Brand, Communications and Community Investment.
“Hearing Canadians’ wishes, we knew we could do something meaningful.”
That something meaningful – was actually giving people in Vancouver, Toronto, and Calgary round trip flights and all-inclusive vacations to see their loved ones.
“Unsuspecting Canadians authentically divulged so many relatable missed moments from flights home for the holidays, to family reunions and planned vacations that were postponed,” continued Bartrem.
“We truly hope this year’s Christmas Miracle brings joy and the personal connection we’ve all been wishing for the most. As the skies open once again, we look forward to doing what we’ve been doing so well for 25 years.”
