TEMPERATURE SCANNING 

Non-contact temperature scanning has been extended to WestJet’s entire domestic network to aid in a more seamless and reliable execution of the Transport Canada interim order. This screening further supports the government-mandated health questionnaires that are already in place for guests.   

Prior to boarding, temperature screening is conducted using a safe, non-contact infrared thermometer. Before implementing this new process across all 38 domestic stations, WestJet trialled non-contact temperature scanning at its three hubs in Calgary, Vancouver and Toronto from May 11-15 to gauge its operational feasibility. See how WestJet’s non-contact temperature scanning works in this video here.
