In December of 2013, the company set out to surprise passengers aboard two flights heading to Calgary. While checking in for the flight, passengers were directed to an electronic check in counter featuring a WestJet Santa videocasted on the monitor. Prompted to make Christmas wishes, each of the passengers made a request until all 250 passengers made the gift list. While the flight was in air, teams of WestJet volunteers rushed out to stores in and around Calgary International Airport, purchased, wrapped, and labeled each of the requested items. As the passengers eventually arrived in Calgary, they headed towards the baggage claim, where they expected to receive their luggage. Instead, they were met with all of the gifts they had requested prior to their flight.
