Thank you, WestJet!

September 10, 2018

We’re pleased to announce that WestJet, in addition to Air Canada and Porter Airlines, will be accepting the Federal Retirees Canadian Armed Forces veteran membership card as identification for their military baggage policy as of September 17, 2018. We are delighted that WestJet is now recognizing our CAF Veteran membership card for this benefit.

To obtain your own Federal Retirees Canadian Armed Forces veteran membership card, eligible members can contact the national office or mail us the courtesy reply card included in the fall issue of Sage magazine.

With this new membership card, having your baggage fees waived is easy and simply requires you to present it to an airport agent after checking in. However, to avoid surprises at the terminal, ensure you’re familiar with the airline’s baggage policies before flying.
