WestJet and Canadian tourism company Transat AT, which operates Air Transat, announced the May 10 termination of a transport agreement originally scheduled to expire next year. Deal allowed Transat Tours Canada to charter WestJet aircraft. The parties said they "may enter into an ad-hoc charter agreement" in the future. Transat will replace WestJet with CanJet Airlines, with which it signed a five-year deal to April 30, 2014, with two one-year options. CanJet operates 737-800s.
