WestJet traffic is continuing to surge, according to the Canada-based carrier’s latest data report.

WestJet reported 2.174 billion revenue passenger miles in May, a 7.5 percent increase over the same period in 2017.

The carrier also showed a 5.4 percent increase in available seat miles in May to 2.646 billion, while load factor rose by 1.6 percentage points to 82.2 percent last month.

“Although May presented extraordinary challenges, we are delighted that 2.1 million guests chose to fly with us” said WestJet President and CEO Ed Sims. “My sincere thanks go out to each individual WestJetter for their continued dedication to delivering our award-winning brand of friendly caring service.”

WestJet has been on an expansion push in recent years to the Caribbean and Mexico, from its high-profile launch of new flights to Belize to a continued expansion in Mexico.

WestJet also recently made its return to St Maarten after suspending operations due to Hurricane Irma last year.
