Airport Terminal Services (ATS) has been selected as the ground handling service provider for WestJet at Calgary International Airport (YYC). Calgary is WestJet’s home base and largest hub.
ATS already proudly serves the WestJet brand in 19 cities across the United States and Canada, including an existing GSE maintenance operation in Calgary. With the addition of this ground handling agreement, ATS is building a new focused team dedicated to support the WestJet operation in YYC.
“We are thrilled to be awarded this contract and are committed to making the WestJet ramp in Calgary one of the best operations in our network,” said Sally Leible, ATS President and CEO. “WestJet has played a vital role in our history, and we are proud to still be growing our partnership more than 20 years later.”
“For more than two decades ATS has provided safe, dedicated and caring service to millions of WestJet guests across our network,” said Robert Antoniuk, WestJet Vice-President, Airports. “Due to this long-standing relationship we know ATS is aligned with our culture and commitment to ‘safety above all’; these were the principle reasons we selected the company as our ground service partner for our largest hub. We are pleased that this arrangement will create opportunities for our current team members and more than 100 interviews have already been set up for WestJetters interested in transitioning to the ATS team. We look forward to what ATS will bring to our ground operations in Calgary.”
