Kingston, November 17, 2022 ÛÒ Sail Canada is pleased to bring another great benefit to our members, friends and followers by way of the Sail Canada WestJet Biz online booking portal, allowing the entire Canadian sailing community to earn rewards faster towards enjoying discounts on their flight bookings.
Once the Sail Canada community reaches bookings amounting to $10,000 through the portal, any member of this Sail Canada WestJet Biz portal will be able to enjoy direct discounts while booking flights. So the more the Canadian sailing community uses it, the sooner and better will be the discount! Discounts may vary between 3% to 15% and are graded by level of booking (Econo to BusinessFlex) for Domestic, Transborder and Transatlantic flights.
