Busiest Travel Day of the Year for WestJet

WestJet expects to transport 60,000 people to their holiday destinations today, marking the busiest travel day of the year for the airline.

In a YouTube video posted Thursday, the Calgary-based airline advised guests to pack their patience over the next few days. In light of winter storm advisories issued for parts of Canada, WestJet provided a list of holiday travel tips to ease traffic congestion at airports nationwide.

WestJet expects to set a single-day service record today with the number of flights in the air and its passenger load ahead of Christmas week.
