WestJet Cargo is launching a new service targeting university students and staff needing to transport personal effects.

The Campus Air service offers students and employees of select Canadian universities a 50% discount on published freight rates applicable to domestic shipments of personal effects. 

To qualify for the Campus’Air discount, individuals must be current students or employees of the participating universities. The new service was launched on July 1.

Obtaining a shipping quote can be done by contacting the WestJet Cargo contact centre. Most shipments will arrive within 24 hours, subject to flight availability and connecting options.

The airline said that at present, the discount only applies to domestic shipments but it “encourages students whose universities are not currently featured to reach out for possible future inclusion”.

“At WestJet Cargo, we recognise the unique challenges faced by students and university staff in transporting their personal belongings,” said Kirsten De Bruijn, executive vice president, WestJet Cargo.

“Campus’Air is our way of supporting the academic community, providing them with an affordable, reliable shipping solution that underscores our commitment to fostering education and community development across Canada.”
